Objects found by children in an attic tell the story of the father of Canadian theatre, John Hirsch. His deathbed interview is listened to on reel-to-reel by a ten year-old watching his friends and babysitter play video games and unearth Hirsch's belongings. As a teenage World War II orphan, Hirsch came to Winnipeg from Europe, his only possession a suitcase puppet show. He became an agitator for culture on the Canadian prairies, co-founding the Manitoba Theatre Centre and going to to direct New York's Lincoln Center. He died in Toronto in 1989 at 59 from complications due to AIDS.
