When detective Syunsaku Ban (Kousei Tomita) and his young nephew Kenichi (Kei Kobayashi) come into contact with a newly created robot named Tima (Yuka Imoto), their world dives into chaos. Soon, Kenichi is separated from his uncle and finds himself at the laboratory of Dr. Laughton (Junpei Takiguchi), right as it is being destroyed! After narrowly escaping Dr. Laughton's laboratory, Kenichi and Tima are on the run from Rock (Kouki Okada), who is bent on destroying Tima, and Kenichi's uncle is on the search for his one and only nephew. Can Kenichi and Tima escape from Rock? Will Kenichi and his uncle be reunited? Only time will tell.
