Plot

In 1930s Paris, an orphan boy named Hugo lives within the walls of a bustling train station, maintaining the clocks and keeping his presence hidden from the station inspector. Prior to his father's death, Hugo and his father had been restoring an automaton, a mechanical man designed to write with a pen. The key to its function, a heart-shaped lock, remains elusive to Hugo. Driven by the belief that the automaton contains a message from his late father, Hugo is determined to fix it. He steals mechanical parts from the station's toy booth, run by the grumpy toy merchant Georges, to aid in the repair of the automaton.

One day, Hugo is caught stealing by Georges, who confiscates Hugo's notebook containing the automaton's blueprints. The threat of losing the notebook and the automaton's secret devastates Hugo, but a chance encounter with Isabelle, Georges' goddaughter, provides hope. She is intrigued by Hugo's project and decides to help him. The two form an unlikely friendship as they embark on a quest to solve the mystery of the automaton. Sharing a love for literature and adventure, they get swept up in an adventure that takes them through the hidden wonders of the train station and the dusty memories of the past. Together, they dive deep into the world of early cinema, where they uncover the forgotten treasures of a bygone era and the beauty of the dreams encapsulated within it.
