Outside a small bar in Kingston, NY, Mark Hogancamp was beaten nearly to death, his memories wiped away. Seeking recovery, he builds Marwencol, a miniature World War II-era town filled with doll versions of his friends, fantasies, and even his attackers. As he documents the town s dramas with his camera, the dolls become living characters in an epic tale of love, adventure, resurrection and revenge. When his photos are discovered by the art world, Mark is suddenly forced to choose between the safety of his imaginary world and the real world he s avoided since the attack.

This stranger-than-fiction story shows how powerful and healing creativity can be if we let it flow through us--how it can manifest itself in infinite ways.
There is magic in essence.
This story shows that one is never too old, too lost, or too broken to find themselves and create a whole new life.
This is worth buying just to see Mark's expression as he is showing us Deja Thoris's time machine. That beauty and passion in that look of love just gets me every time. Hats off to Hogancamp!!! Thank you for sharing your most precious and most personal with us!!!
The documentary is well-made; I wish there was a part II.
