Kepler is an ordinary man who loves two things beyond all others: the cosmos and his wife, Tomasina. After a sudden and tragic loss, he looks to the stars for answers and journeys deep into space to keep the thing most precious to him alive.

Something Very Far Away is a moving tale that uses puppetry, music, sound and live animation to create a unique and beautiful performance that will enchant children and adults alike.
