Here’s the rather lengthy synopsis from Wiki“”it’s unknown if this is a 100% accurate outline, but it seems legit.
Dark clouds are crowding in the sky above the endless metropolis. This is Thelomeris, the city of cogwheels and clocks.
The citizens are living their lives in order to operate the clock factory and make it work as effectively as possible and create more energy for making even more clockworks. No one knows who established the city and why, or how long it has existed. Its ancient bordering walls and looming skyscrapers are reaching for the sky silently. Enormous metal cogs are working at the heart of the clock factory, as it casts dark shadows onto the city.
The biggest and most influential man of Thelomeris, MAN1, is the owner of the clock factory too. His job is to operate the factory as effectively as he can while grabbing all opportunities to study time and get as close to understanding it as possible. He is a mysterious and scary man, who leads his company with fearless determination, knowing that even his investors are scared of him, thinking that he has no emotions what so ever. There is only one person who can fill this empty heart with warmth. This is his wife, who with love and care tries to convince MAN1 to close down the factory, before they risk losing everything, including each other. But just before he is able to make the decision over the clock factory his wife suddenly becomes sick. No one knows what the cause of the secret disease is, and all his powers seem to be too scant to help. There is only one chance remaining: to play out time and go against it; change the course of time and in this way, change his wife’s destiny.
There seems to be only one mysterious person, ‘Stranger’ (Hamill) who offers a solution to eluding fate. But fate isn’t something to be played with…
Mark Hamill as Emperor Palpatine?

It’s so hard not to hear The Joker.
