A short puppet film by David Michael Friend; part of Heather Henson's "Handmade Puppet Dreams" series. ------ A fisherman's hobby of sculpting is interrupted when he must perform his monthly task of illuminating the town he lives in. With container on back, fishing pole in hand, and his current carving stashed in his pocket, the lonely soul goes searching for the perfect spot to catch the moon's shimmering sister. But his shattered hope for exchanging his catch for the villager's fellowship returns him to his art for companionship.
