The Story

The Good Little Robot is stranded here on Earth. With no way home, he tries to make the best of things by fitting into society. He gets a dull job, makes friends with Francis, a quiet sheep, and Robin, a young data-entry clerk who longs to get her journalism career back on track. A top secret, yet mostly inept government agency whose purpose is apparently to cover up the truth about extra-terrestrial life on Earth quickly catches wind of robot's existence, and makes his life a little more interesting than he would have liked.
