It is a tribute to the persons who dedicated their lives to sharing their souls with beings who never had it, to the people who gave their voices to objects that had so much to say, to tell old forgotten stories. To the puppeteers, who were not allowed to be buried in cemeteries due to their profession, as they were considered soulless.
