To avoid retelling the movie. This is Soviet "Terminator". Or it is how they would film a "Terminator" in the Soviet Union back in 1980. Soviet professor creates an intelligent machine - human flesh on exosceleton, blah-blah-blah... Model "Electronic". Soviet Terminator looks like a subtle blonde six-grader boy. Electronic's abilities or functions are vast and absolutely amazing. But old Soviet Professor dug a bit deeper in his research than probably it was expected by the Communist party, and the cyborg he created received a very strange bug - a need to become a human. A little bit embarrassed by the robot's behaviour Professor looses contact with his creation, and cyborg leaves Professor alone for new and unknown world of humans (remember Short Circuit, it was also demonstrated in the USSR in the late 80's, however Johny 5 is an awkward box of steel on caterpillars armed with laser). Very soon Electronic meets a boy who looks absolutely like him - Professor recreated Electronic's body and face from a real six-grader's poster in the kid's magazine. As long as human prototype understands all benefits of having a cyborg twin, he starts to use it to full. Electronic does his homework, goes to school instead of him, and finally replaces the human prototype in the family. The teachers, the family, and Electronic himself are happy, еspecially Electronic - he became human by taking social functions of a real human. But the human prototype who's name btw is Sergey Syroezhkin, becomes outcast in the society and in his own family. Sergey finally understands his pitiful situation, because Electronic exceeds him in everything and therefore is much more appealing to the teachers, to the classmates and to the family than a lazy laidback careless entertainment-loving Sergey. Sergey decides to open the truth to the society. Electronic agrees that taking social functions of a human have not made cyborg a human. However the story doesn't end, and Electronic is smuggled by international gangster mob planning to take advantage of Soviet robot's supefunctions for crime. Mob's boss Stump send his hit-man Urrie to USSR to bring Electronic to gangster headquarters as he believes Electronic is a machine controlled by knobs and switches. Urrie brings Electronic and explaines to Stump that Electronic is unbelievably more sophisticated creation, so "he has no knob" (a catchphrase throughout the USSR). Old snake Stump uses double-face behaviour to persuade Electronic to help gangsters to rob a museum aka "get the pictures from the hands of greedy people and transfer to the hands of honest people". Electronic agrees - his naivity and readiness to believe are limited only by the ability to learn.
