Miles is a young man who one day meets a robotic dog, A.X.L., who has been developed by the army to protect the soldiers. After they live together for much time, they becomes best friends. The army is back now to get their dog, the thing that may change the whole lives of Miles and A.X.L.

Meanwhile, the scientists who lost A-X-L spend half the movie watching these events unfold on a computer screen, doing not a danged thing because they want to see how it all pans out. They are, it must be said, lousy scientists.
