Poupelle of Chimney Town is the breathtaking story of young Lubicchi and a man made of garbage, Poupelle. Living among the thick smoke from the chimneys of his isolated town, Lubicchi yearns to see the "stars" — to know the truth — his father always told him about. Spectacularly beautiful, Poupelle of Chimney Town is filled with inspiring performances, splendid music and sound effects. Produced at Tokyo's famed STUDIO4ºC, this astonishing film will bring tears, laughter, and joy.
