Poupelle of Chimney Town Story
There was a town isolated from the outside world by four thousand meter high cliffs that surrounded it completely. The town was full of chimneys. Smoke rose from everywhere, and overhead the sky was filled with thick smoke. Smoke. Smoke by day, and smoke by night.

The people of Chimney Town were shrouded in black smoke. They didn't know about the blue sky. They didn't know about the shining stars.

This is the miraculous story of a man made of garbage, and the chimney sweep Poupelle.
