An absurd comedy about a lonely man who lives inside an old clock. Every hour it is tied and ejected through the doors of the watch. "Cuckoo!" shouts "Cuckoo!" His work is vital. The old lady sitting under the clock must take her medication as soon as the clock strikes. One day the man has the opportunity to win a considerable amount of money in a quiz on the radio. She loves gadgets and wants to buy a new computer. The only problem is that he can only call at the time he should be at his place.
