From the producers of Persepolis and the mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes a riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate steampunk universe. Paris, 1941: a family of scientists on the brink of discovering a longevity serum is mysteriously abducted, leaving their young daughter April behind. As she carries on her family’s research in secret, April (voiced by Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard) finds herself at the center of a shadowy and far-reaching conspiracy, on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles and cyborg rat spies. The talented cast voicing the English-language version includes Paul Giamatti, Tony Hale, Susan Sarandon and J.K. Simmons.
