Frank & Emmet

Directed by Carlos F. Puertolas

United States | 12 minutes | 2021

Two life-long friends and show-business partners who, after weeks of drifting apart, sit together to have a much-needed conversation. Their friendly dialogue takes a turn when they address head-on the one thing they've never talked about: One of them is a puppet.
