Robots from a distant Galaxy are taking over Earth.

Survivors are confined to their houses and risking incineration by Robot Sentries if they venture outside from the electronic implants they are forced to wear.

City centres are devastated and Sean Flynn, a teenager whose father has gone missing in the war between humans and robots gathers a group of teenagers to help fight the enemies and find his father. The gang of teenagers live in a seaside town constantly under Robot threat. Intimidating Sentries patrol the streets, Snipers are merciless death machines. The Mediator is deceptively childlike but unnervingly coercive. The Robot base is The Cube, a massive mother-ship that dominates the horizon.
