Global warming has led to ecological disasters all over the world, and a drastic reduction of the human population. Humanity’s best efforts to maintain civilization have led to the creation of new robots known as mechas, advanced humanoid robots capable of emulating thoughts and emotions. David, an advanced prototype model created by Cybertronics, is designed to resemble a human child and to virtually feel love for its human owners. They test their creation on one of their employees, Henry Swinton and his wife Monica. The Swintons have a son, Martin, who has been placed in suspended animation until a cure can be found for his rare disease. Although Monica is initially frightened of David, she eventually warms to him after activating his imprinting protocol, which irreversibly causes David to feel love for her as a child loves a parent. As he continues to live with the Swintons, David is befriended by Teddy, a robotic teddy bear, who takes upon himself the responsibility of David’s well being.
Martin is suddenly cured and brought home; a sibling rivalry ensues between Martin and David. Martin’s scheming behavior backfires when he and his friends activate David’s self-protection programming at a pool party. Martin is saved from drowning but David’s actions prove too much for Henry. It is decided for David to be destroyed at the factory where he was built, but Monica leaves him (alongside Teddy) in a forest to live as unregistered mechas. David is captured for an anti-mecha Flesh Fair, an event where useless mechas are destroyed before cheering crowds. David is nearly killed, but the crowd is swayed by his realistic nature (David, unlike other mechas, pleads for his life) and he escapes, along with Gigolo Joe (Jude Law), a male prostitute mecha on the run after being framed for murder.
