In Pre-production

An elderly inventor, Valentino, lives in a stunning art deco house perched on the side of a cliff in a mountainous fantasy world. His latest creation, a flying machine, remains incomplete and gathers dust due to his frustration with his deteriorating physical condition. Valentino shares his home with a mechanical hummingbird he created, named Alida, who springs to life at dawn when her heart, a magical white gemstone, is lit by sunlight. One day, they are attacked by a ghostly giant raven, Libitina. Valentino must overcome his insecurities to escape her fury.
