In a world populated by clattering clockwork machines, Mr Hublot lives in an oasis of meticulously ordered calm. His life away from the metallic clamour of the city is as precisely organised as … well, as clockwork. No book, picture frame or salt shaker is ever out of place in his fastidiously managed home. But when a stray robot pet enters Mr Hublot’s life, things become less predictable and he must decide whether control is more valuable than affection.
