After unwisely and drunkenly telling them about his fetish for wearing women's shoes, Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell) is brutally attacked by white supremacists. The attack leaves him with post-traumatic stress disorder and memory loss. To cope with this, Mark creates a model doll village named Marwen (later renamed Marwencol). Mark fantasizes that the dolls are alive and act out in scenes which he photographs. The dolls correspond to people that he knows in real life. Putting together pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic. As he builds an astonishing art installation—a testament to the most powerful women he knows—through his fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one.
