A story about an unusual friendship.
Eleven-year-old Tibor has only one friend: his outdated house robot T.I.M. When his father replaces the faulty robot, Tibor manages to save T.I.M. from destruction. Together they set out
for the mythical robot maker Hector Sammler, who is rumoured to live in the far north in an ancient lighthouse. During their adventurous quest through unchartered territory, T.I.M.
continues to fall apart and their journey ends in a race against the clock to reach Hector in time.
