The heart and soul of Cell is Ted, a rather portly puppet with glasses who has a reasonably happy, if staid, life that revolves around stamp collecting. Then he begins to notice changes in his body; he starts dropping objects, becomes dizzy, trips a lot. A series of doctor’s appointments and tests reveal the diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease. What to do now? Rage? Cry? Allow life to shrink to an ever-dwindling circle of increasingly hampered movement? Instead, Ted goes on a trip. He remembers the stamps sent to him on postcards from around the world and decides to make the most of the movement he has left by traveling Europe with his pet fish.
