Based on the film by Jan Švankmajer
A couple, desperate but unable to start a family, develop an intense relationship with a tree stump carved to look like a baby.
Believing it to be real, gradually their obsession brings the stump of wood to life. As the fixation grows, so does the ‘baby’ along with its monstrous appetite.
