Inside a cuckoo clock lives a lonely man. Every hour he is catapulted out of his tiny house to yell ‘Cuckoo!’

“An absurd comedy about a lonely man who lives inside a cuckoo clock.” This is one of those films that makes me wonder where the idea came from. It comes off as a fun little film but when you think about it, it has such deep meaning. Our daily lives are controlled; rote. What does it look like to try to break the norm? Clever and wholly original. I can’t wait for people to see this one!
