''Under Night Sky'' is the inspiring story of three children united across history by threads of courage, hope, and love. Dazzling puppetry brings memories to life from stories stitched together in the pieces of Grandmother's patchwork quilt. Follow the North Star through the night on the Underground Railroad, hear the waves crash against ships carrying Irish immigrants across as the sea, and enter an old School House to witness a girl proudly wearing a coat of rags, stitched to patchwork perfection.
