At the end of the fairy training, each student has to pass an exam. She must perform a miracle - and make a person happy. In the workshop of the old doll maker Gepetto, a young fairy attempts her journeyman's piece. But it doesn't quite work out. Only a freshly carved doll comes to life and is a right wooden head. He runs through the world, trusts crooks, skips school and gets swallowed by a whale. And yet his father, old Gepetto, loves him. When the three of them meet again after many detours in the doll maker's workshop, they decide to stay together. An old rascal, a failed fairy and a wooden doll that talks. A small, quirky family.
