An isolated woman finds solace in shopping. After one of her big-box sprees, she finds, stuffed inside a box of Halloween lights, a cry-for-help note written by a woman in a Chinese labor camp. Inspired into activism, the shopper embarks on an odyssey of global proportions.
Inspired by true events, Made in China is a fantastical exploration of human rights, consumerism, and morality as told through the unlikely love story between a middle-aged American woman and her Chinese expat neighbor. Baby pandas, dancing appliances, and romping middle-aged lovers populate Wakka Wakka's fantastical universe. Made in China features 30 puppets, music inspired by both American and Chinese traditions, and animated video.
