At an elite academy where the wealthiest students from across the galaxy come to be educated, Hugo works as a watchmaker in a dusty attic room. But he is one of the lucky ones. Many androids like him are jobless and homeless. A privileged student like Dorian could never understand their struggle - or so Hugo thinks when the pompous duke comes knocking at his door with a broken time-travel watch. But when Hugo and Dorian discover that powerful quantum energy is being stolen from the watches, they fear that someone is plotting a sinister scheme ... Android and student must reconcile their differences if they are to track down the culprit before the whole academy is placed in danger..
