Synopsis / Plot
At Nova Robotics, six new, self-sufficient SAINT military robots, built with highly dexterous limbs, wheels and high-powered laser units are premiered before the assembled brass. But following the demonstration, a freak lightning bolt hits the No. 5 robot, sending it into disarray. It accidentally escapes the institute, whereupon it becomes the target of a massive hunt by the paranoid military. Falling in with ice-cream vendor Stephanie Speck and her menagerie of homeless animals, No. 5 becomes filled with an eager desire to consume as much data input as it can. When its creator Newton Crosby catches up with it, Newton realizes that the lightning bolt has caused No. 5 to become self-aware. Newton and Stephanie become engaged in a battle to protect No. 5's uniqueness from the military that want to capture and dismantle it.
