It’s the near future and Britain, still gripped by recession, is embroiled in a cold war with China. The Ministry of Defence has been working on a mechanised soldier, a thinking robot that would not only have the ability to fight, but to negotiate and keep peace too. Lead scientist Vincent McCarthy has his own personal agenda; he’s desperate to harness this new technology to help give his sick daughter Mary another chance at life. With tests on his early prototypes ending in disaster, Vincent pairs up with another scientist, a beautiful young American called Ava, whose software he hopes will hold the key to unlocking the secrets of a conscious machine.

Meanwhile Thomson, Vincent’s scheming boss, is stringing him along; he’s only really interested in a killing machine that will follow his every command. With a suspicious Ava wiped out by Thomson’s henchmen, it’s up to Vincent to finish their work alone and bring The Machine to life.

As The Machine shows increasing signs of consciousness, Vincent’s daughter slowly slips away. Threatened by The Machine’s intelligence, Thomson plots to modify her program and dehumanise her. Vincent struggles to protect his creation and it looks like Thomson will get his way. But The Machine fights back, rampaging through the base and destroying everything in her path.
