If you grew up in the 1950s and were old enough to watch TV on your own you will probably remember all those neat shows about the future. Back then the future was some great thing to look forward to where mankind would live a life of leisure and work, from mundane household chores to building rocket ships to take us into space would be handled by friendly robots. Meet Kent Weston, played by Chris Gibbs. Kent lives in that sort of future. Well, almost. Life is not just comfortable but comfortably predictable as well. And then one day Kent is demoted because his job has been given to a robot (Peter Mooney) named, Adam. A very human kind of robot. A good looking, perhaps even sexy robot. The real story behind the film begins when Kent’s main crush, Allison (Lara Kelly), becomes more interested in the robot than in him. Calling on his techno-savvy pal Garth, Kent sets out to destroy the robotic interloper. Stymied in his initial efforts, Kent`s plans become more and more complex, until he ultimately succeeds in frying Adam’s circuits. Kent gets his old job back, but he fails to win back Allison who thinks his behaviour was cruel. Alone with just the cold comfort of his own well-oiled routine, Kent begins to question just how much robot there is in him and how much human there was in Adam.
