“Brilliant, dark, sinister and foreboding…Dark fantasy at its grimmest.” In a world where children are exploited, monsters are saviors, and dark magic presides, a little girl will go to any lengths to be reunited with her lost ones. After the disappearance of her parents, a heartbroken child is sold to a Doll-Maker who promises to revive them. In return, she is to travel from cemetery to cemetery, unearthing graves and collecting skulls. While doing so, she struggles to avoid the Violinist and his crows, who are determined to steal the skulls she has painstakingly gathered. As she travels across the province, with her life in constant peril from vengeful policemen to strange creatures, the little girl desperately uses her wits to succeed in her macabre mission.
