After years of being asleep in storage, you awaken as Guignol the puppet. 
Confused and lost in this unfamiliar world, you explore La Croix-Rousse in search of your puppeteer, Laurent Mourguet.
But years of slumber have left gaps in your memory. Where are the Canuts of years gone by? And why does nobody seem to remember you?
You only know one thing for certain: you must find your old partner.
