This is the fantastical world of Della Mortika, where steam is king, where life is hard, but where adventure is always adventure.
Della Mortika is a steampunk world expressed through novels, artwork and a short film
The film is set inside a pop-up book from which emerge the stories of Della Mortika, where a melting pot of characters embark on a series of exciting adventures.
We meet three English sisters who are searching for their missing parents, a Russian soldier trying to make his mark on the world, an Irish scamp just getting by, an Aboriginal boy wanting to become a great inventor and an Evil Baron intent on controlling the city. Their paths cross, their lives intermingle, their fates are entwined.
The normal line of history is altered in this world and while some parts appear old fashioned, others appear strangely futuristic. This world is archaic and advanced, Dickensian and Orwellian, elegant and spooky.
