(Tovarasul de drum) is a fusion of the art of puppetry and 3D  
technology, using 3D glasses! A young orphan boy, Johan, embarks on a  
journey to find his princess. Armed only with courage and a kind  
heart, Johan -- accompanied by a fellow traveler -- faces many tests  
before finally reaching his goal.

company and the first in the world using multimedia and showing
