Leonard and Mary meet in a car crash. They fall instantly in love, and live happily ever after…until Mary gets sick. Desperate to save her, Leonard decides that if he builds a house for Mary, it will heal her. Leonard loves Mary so much he builds a house to save her life. Self-taught animator Brent Green built a town, a moon and stars to make a film about their love and our myths. Inspired by the real actions of the eccentric Leonard Wood, filmmaker and musician Brent Green brings to life this love story like no other in his first feature-length film. Shot entirely on the full-scale town he built in his backyard, Green combines animation, stop-motion and live-action in an ethereal opus to lovers and tinkerers everywhere.
