A classic by the incredible Caro and Jeunet duo. Old and decrepit Krank has lost his capacity for dreaming and is attempting to fight death by stealing the dreams of children. Krank's cadre of cloned henchmen snatch 5-year-old Denree to subject him to the horrific dream-retrieval process. The boy's father, One, the hulking strongman of a traveling circus, and his precocious 9-year-old friend, Miette, join forces to defeat Krank's minions and save Denree.
