Set in present-day London, this uneven children's film from director Christine Edzard is divided into three different stories. In the first tale the kitchen utensils and objects come alive and have their own discussion when the occupants of the house are gone. In the second, the Little Match Girl suffers an impecunious existence in London's East End. And in the last story, a love of dancing is embodied in the performances of two dancers from the Royal Ballet (Lesley Collier as a princess, and Graham Fletcher as Prince Potato). Other dancers take on the roles of garden variety vegetables in undoubtedly one of their more unusually costumed performances.
