Produced by Epithète Films, Tapioca Films

    T.S. Spivet lives with his parents, sister Gracie and brother Layton in a remote ranch in Montana. A little boy with a gift and a passion for science, he invents the machine of perpetual movement, which earns him the highly prestigious Baird Award from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington.

    But no one in Washington ever imagined that the lucky winner is only ten years old and that he is hiding a very dark secret...
