A children's fantasy where building blocks and music effects do everything. Blocks represent the make-believe city and the two children who play in it. Blocks even act out the story when an angry dragon appears on the scene, while music scores the action. This is puppet theatre reduced to its simplest form, but so colourfully and lucidly presented that everyone is absorbed and entertained. Film without words.

1972, 13 min 52 s
