Puppeteer Nikolaus Habjan breathes new life into Goethe´s classic “Faust“. When the elderly scholar Faust realizes that his continuous strive for knowledge clashes with the pursuit of happiness, he aims to find the latter at long last by making a pact with the devil. But the devil has his own motives and soon Faust´s fate takes a turn for the worse.
