Synopsis:
Never mess with the hands. Don‘t get too excited. And never ever fall in love. Not heeding these rules could mean the end. Jack is born on the coldest day Scotland has ever known. When his heart freezes solid as a rock, the midwife replaces it spontaneously with a cuckoo clock. Years later, the inevitable occurs: the boy meets an enchanting singer and they sing a love song together. When Jack wakes, the beauty has vanished. And that‘s just the very beginning of this fantastic story.
