Synopsis

When Mark Hogancamp emerged from his coma, following a vicious attack, he had little memory of his previous life. Seeking solace, Mark built 'Marwencol,' an incredible 1/6th scale World War II-era town in his backyard. He populated the town with dolls and toy soldiers representing his friends, family, even his attackers, and created life-like photographs detailing the town's many relationships and intrigues. Through Mark's lens, these were no longer dolls - they became living, breathing characters in an epic WWII story full of violence, jealousy, longing and revenge. When the photos are discovered by an art magazine, and a prestigious gallery comes calling, Mark is suddenly forced to make a choice between the safety of his fictional town and the real world beyond it.
