  • Legendary lawyer Thurman Cutler is hired to defend Adam, a humanoid robot with many human qualities including speech, rational mind and empathy, who's been accused of murdering his creator. Cutler suspects there's more to the story.

  • After Dr. Link is killed in his university lab, the prime suspect is his robot creation, Adam. The robot is taken into custody and tells Dr. Link's daughter Mina that he has no memory of what happened. She wants him released but a court hearing has been scheduled for the following Monday and the expected result is that Adam will be dismantled. Mina convinces now retired civil right attorney Thurman Cutler to defend him. Mina believes Adam to be a sentient being whose artificial intelligence allows him to make reasoned decisions. Cutler wants him tried for murder because if he can do so, Adam's humanity must first be recognized.

  • Late at night, Dr. Link works on his creation, a powerful robot named Adam Link. Adam goes berserk and murders Dr. Link! Law enforcement issues an order for the robot's destruction, but the dead man's daughter Nina Link hires retired lawyer and full-time curmudgeon Thurman Cutler to defend the machine's rights as if it were a man! Cutler takes the case as much to mock the legal system that has made him a cynic as for any other reason, but can even his brilliant mind save Adam Link from destruction?
