When Robots start thinking for themselves, they decree planet earth will not survive unless all humans are destroyed. They execute 90% of them and send the rest to work in underground sustainable mines. But when Executive Producer Master Bot writes a play, Giles, a human theatre director, is sent up from the mines in the hope that robots will be able to calculate the formula of art.
But because Executive can't feel, he can't enjoy the perfect art he makes. So he makes a deal with Giles: if Giles is capable of putting on a play that can make robots feel, he will allow the human race to coexist with robots, if he can't, he will be executed in front of his cast.
