Morton is a young boy who lives alone at the edge of a dark forest with his four prized clockwork animals. When a huge storm destroys his hut and scatters his possessions, Morton sets out to locate his treasures.

On his quest Morton learns how to defeat monsters, remembers how to smile and makes his first real friend.
