Video Commentary
It’s always nice to see any reflective commentary from documentary filmmakers included, even if it’s just on snippets of the film, rather than in its entirety as it is here. Nathan speaks on why Pug became his main subject, why he sympathizes with Coco, how he came to meet Steven and why he’s become a crucial voice in the film, as well as the camerawork, all broken into four separate segments. 21 min

Outtakes
Once again presented as individual snippets, there are four appropriately titled clips included- I’m a Grown Ass Man, Pug’s Grill,Coco and Pug’s Day Out, Coco’s Future. 8 min

On Sunday, 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed built a homemade clock. It wasn't especially difficult for him, and the result wasn't polished — it looked like a mess of wires and circuitry. He was still adjusting to life as a high schooler, and he wanted to bring in something cool to show his teachers.

Mohamed eagerly showed several teachers the clock and explained what it was, but he didn't get the congratulations he was expecting. Instead, he left school in handcuffs.

Young Mohamed's story has drawn accusations of racism and Islamophobia, and many — scientists, technologists and members of the general public alike — are expressing shock and outrage. But as with any incident of discrimination, especially in science, the truth is that we aren't really shocked. And that's the worst part.

Ahmed Mohamed's arrest has been sharply criticised , and the boy has received an outpouring of support including an invitation to the White House .

"I built a clock to impress my teacher but when I showed it to her she thought it was a threat to her. I'm very sad that she got the wrong impression of it."

Ahmed's father Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, who is originally from Sudan, praised his son's ingenuity, saying he fixes everything around the house, including his father's phone and computer.

In Scotland 1874, Jack is born on the coldest day ever. Because of the extreme cold, his heart stops beating. The responsible midwife in Edinburgh finds a way to save him by replacing his heart with a clock. So he lives and remains under the midwife's protective care. But he must not get angry or excited because that endangers his life by causing his clock to stop working. Worse than that, when he grows up, he has to face the fact he cannot fall in love because that too could stop his delicate heart.
