Shakespeare's classic play is retold in this creative film using puppets. Helena (Barbara Leigh-Hunt) loves Demetrius (Michael Meacham), who is engaged to Hermia (Ann Bell), who loves Lysander (Tom Criddle). To escape her forced marriage to Demetrius, Hermia convinces Lysander to elope. The young lovers are pursued by Demetrius, Helena and an Athenian search party to a darkened wood -- where they cross paths with a mischievous group of fairies and a bumbling theater troupe.
