Shakespeare: The Animated Tales | The Winter’s Tale

The Winter's Tale

Sculptured Russian puppets perform the powerful and enchanting story, full of regal and rustic characters. King Leontes's fit of temper results in the death of his wife and his young son, and his baby daughter is banished. Sixteen years later, with the intervention of gods and humbler mortals, a magical ending is crafted.
