The setting for the film was inspired by the cultural and political contrast of the Cold War era and its impact on director Jiri Barta and the Czech Republic.  The world of the attic is divided into the land of happy toys in the West and the Land of Evil in the East.  The despotic Head of State rules over the Land of Evil with a band of sinister minions, insects and rotted vegetables.  When the lovely Buttercup is kidnapped and held prisoner by The Head, it is up to her friends - a teddy bear, a mechanical mouse and marionette puppet to cross the international boundary and attempt their daring rescue.
