SummaryAdd a Summary
An orphan boy, Hugo, who sets the clocks in a Parisian train station (and secretly lives there) searches for a message from his late father through a robot that's missing a mechanical piece. However, the robot has mysterious connections to other people Hugo knows, opening up a new world of secrets about them and threatening to open up Hugo's secrets to them, too.

Hugo Cabret: "Everything has a purpose - even machines... Clocks tell the time... trains take you places... They do what they're meant to do." Isabelle: "Like Monsieur Labisse!" Hugo Cabret: "Maybe that's why broken machines make me so sad... they can't do what they're meant to do... Maybe it's the same with people. If you lose your purpose... it's like you're broken."
HUGO CABRET: I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.
