Edinburgh, late 19th century. Little Jack is born on a day so cold that his heart 
remains frozen. Madeleine the midwife replaces his heart with a cuckoo-clock.
It will work, as long as Jack follows the rules, mainly not falling in love.
But his encounter with a fiery-eyed girl singing on a street corner and his decision
to chase after her will test the resistance of his makeshift heart to the breaking
point... Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a magnificent love story set in an exciting
period full of fabulous inventions, eccentric characters and fantastic adventures.
Adapted by Mathias Malzieu from his best-selling novel and the gold-selling album by
his band Dionysos, this superbly animated movie is about passion and acceptance of others.
