After being beaten into a coma, Mark Hogancamp is left brain damaged and traumatized. He devises his own brand of therapy by constructing a 1/16th-scale World War II-era town in his backyard, and weaving complex storylines around his doll characters. Through Marwencol, Mark embarks on a long journey back into the real world, both physically and emotionally.
