Poupelle of Chimney Town tells the story of young Lubicchi living among the thick smoke from the chimneys of his isolated town. Lubicchi yearns to see the stars and blue sky his father always told him about, and one fateful Halloween night he meets Poupelle, made of rubbish and scraps stuck to a wayward heart. The beauty and warmth of Poupelle of Chimney Town opens hearts, evokes joy and even brings a tear.
