Punch! is a modern interpretation of the original Punch and Judy puppet show, looking at violence and the human condition. We follow our anti-hero on his journey as he comes to terms with his guilt over a childhood mistake that killed his baby brother. A fantasy, a black comedy drawing on commedia del arte.
