Lucas loves robots. Especially the robot in the playground near his new house. How he wishes that the robot would come to life, and one night, after a big storm, he does! Somehow, the lightning recharged the robot’s battery, so when Lucas comes to him after the storm, the two of them have fun playing all night. Lucas and his new robot friend forge a friendship that will have a deep impact on Lucas, for years to come.
