A repair and medical robot (F.R.E.D.I.) is hidden from an evil corporation by its creator, Dr. Josephine Palmer, in an abandoned fort. Soon after, F.R.E.D.I. is discovered and befriended by James, a teenager whose parents have recently separated. Bringing the robot into his suburban Arkansas home, James introduces F.R.E.D.I., which stands for Future Robotics Innovation Design, to his best friend, science-whiz kid Danny and they decide to keep his existence a secret.

Soon, the boys find out that the high-tech corporation that created F.R.E.D.I. is looking for him with the goal of transforming the robot into the military’s newest weapon. Too young to drive, they enlist the help of James’ school crush Natalie in the hopes of returning F.R.E.D.I. to Dr. Palmer.
