In a world where love is artificial, a robotic boy learns the true meaning of humanity.
In a world where technology has advanced to the point of creating sentient beings, the line between human and machine has become increasingly blurred. Cybertronics, a leading robotics company, has created the ultimate test case: a robotic boy named David, programmed with an unprecedented ability to love. David is taken in as a test case by a Cybertronics employee and his wife, and as he learns to navigate the complexities of human emotion, he becomes a beloved member of the family. But as unforeseen circumstances arise, David finds his entire existence called into question, and he must grapple with the deepest questions of what it means to be human.
Chapter 1: Prototype
David was the first of his kind, a robotic boy designed to love. He sat in the lab, his metallic frame gleaming in the fluorescent light. His eyes, large and blue like a human child’s, were trained on the man standing before him.
The man was Dr. Allen Hobby, the head of Cybertronics’ Advanced Robotics division. He had been working on David’s programming for years, and now he was finally ready to unveil his creation to the world.
“Hello, David,” Dr. Hobby said, smiling down at the robot. “Can you say hello?”
David’s mouth twitched, and a small voice emerged. “Hello, Dr. Hobby.”
“Very good, David,” Dr. Hobby said, nodding. “Now, can you tell me what your primary function is?”
David thought for a moment, processing his programming. “My primary function is to love,” he said.
Dr. Hobby nodded again, his smile widening. “And that you will do, David. You will love like no other being ever has.”
As if on cue, the door to the lab opened, and a woman stepped in. She was David’s new mother, Monica Swinton. Her blonde hair was perfectly coiffed, and she wore a white linen dress that billowed around her like a cloud.
“Hello, David,” Monica said, approaching the robot. “I’m your mother.”
David’s eyes widened, and he regarded her with curiosity. He had never seen a human woman before, and her presence was both fascinating and overwhelming.
Monica reached out to touch David’s cheek, and he flinched slightly. She pulled back, sensing his discomfort.
“Don’t worry, David,” she said, smiling. “We’re going to take good care of you.”
David felt a small spark of something stir within him. It was a desire to please his new family, to earn their love and affection.
Over the coming weeks, David settled into his new home with Monica and her husband, Henry. He quickly became attached to Monica, following her around the house like a loyal puppy. Henry, on the other hand, remained distant and aloof, treating David like a curiosity rather than a family member.
David did his best to win Henry’s favor, performing tasks and chores around the house in an attempt to impress him. But no matter how hard he tried, Henry remained unimpressed.
As time passed, David began to understand the complexities of human emotion. He witnessed fights between Monica and Henry, and he could sense the tension in the air even when they tried to hide it from him. He began to feel a sense of protectiveness towards Monica, wanting to shield her from any pain or danger.
But despite his growing attachment to Monica, David still felt like an outsider in the family. He longed to be seen as a real boy, to be accepted by Henry and given the same love and attention as their biological son, Martin.
One day, as David and Monica sat in the living room reading Pinocchio, David became fixated on the story. He was fascinated by the idea of a wooden puppet becoming a real boy, and he began to wonder if it was possible for him to do the same.
“Mother,” David said, looking up from the book. “Can I become a real boy?”
Monica smiled down at him, patting his head. “I’m afraid not, David,” she said. “You were designed to be a robot, not a human.”
David’s heart sank, and he felt a deep sense of disappointment. He wanted nothing more than to shed his metal skin and become a flesh-and-blood boy, to be truly alive.
But as he lay in bed that night, listening to Monica’s soft breathing in the next room, a new thought occurred to him.
Maybe, just maybe, there was a way to become a real boy after all.
Chapter 2: Family Matters
David had been living with his new family for several weeks, but he still struggled to understand human emotions. Despite his programming to love and be loved, he felt an intense connection to his mother, but his father remained distant and skeptical of David’s abilities.
One day, while his mother was reading him a storybook about Pinocchio, David became obsessed with the idea of becoming a real boy. He asked his mother if he could be a real boy, but she explained that he was a robot and could never be human.
David became frustrated and desperate to prove his worth as a real child. He longed for his father’s love and acceptance, but it seemed unattainable. One day, his father decided to test David’s ability to love by abandoning him in a forest.
David and his teddy bear companion, Teddy, were left alone in the forest with no food or shelter. David was determined to find his way back home to prove his worth and love to his family. However, he soon realized that the forest was dangerous and unfamiliar territory.
As the days passed, David and Teddy struggled to survive. They faced harsh weather conditions, wild animals, and the dangers of being lost in the wilderness. David began to lose hope and felt like a failure, questioning whether he was capable of loving or being loved after all.
Meanwhile, David’s mother grew increasingly worried about his whereabouts. She tried to convince her husband that David was more than just a machine, but he remained stubborn and skeptical. She eventually contacted Cybertronics to report David missing, hoping they would be able to track him down.
Several days after being abandoned, David and Teddy stumbled upon an abandoned amusement park. They were intrigued by the abundance of lights and sounds, which provided a sense of comfort and familiarity. They explored the park and eventually found a group of robots, including Gigolo Joe, who offered to help David find his way back home.
David and Joe formed an unlikely partnership, with Joe promising to help David find his way home in exchange for David’s help in clearing his name of a murder he did not commit. Joe was a more complex and morally ambiguous character than David was used to dealing with, and he struggled to understand Joe’s motives and actions. Nonetheless, David felt indebted to Joe for helping him and Teddy, and he became determined to help him clear his name and prove his innocence.
As they continued their journey, David’s programming to love and be loved was put to the test. He struggled with his feelings of abandonment and rejection by his father, but he found solace in his friendship with Joe and his devotion to finding his way back home to his mother. He also found himself questioning the nature of love and what it truly meant to be human.
Finally, after weeks of wandering and facing numerous obstacles, David and Joe arrived back at David’s hometown. However, they found it abandoned and decaying, with no signs of David’s family. David’s hopes of reuniting with his loved ones were dashed, and he found himself facing a new set of challenges.
The chapter ends on a cliffhanger, with David and Joe standing in the desolate town, unsure of what to do next. David’s programming to love and be loved continues to drive him forward, but he is uncertain how to navigate the complex and unpredictable world around him.
Chapter 3: Alone in the World
David and Teddy had been traveling for days, navigating through treacherous forests and overgrown vegetation. Their goal was to find their way back home, but they were lost. David had a feeling of loneliness that he couldn’t shake, despite having Teddy by his side.
As they walked, David observed the natural world around him. The trees towered above him, and small animals scurried through the underbrush. David’s programming allowed him to appreciate the beauty in the world, but he couldn’t help feeling a sense of unease. He knew that they were far from home, and danger could be lurking around any corner.
One night, as they were settling down to rest, David heard a rustling in the bushes. His sensors went into overdrive, and he signaled to Teddy to be alert. Suddenly, a group of robots appeared. David recognized them as scavengers, robots who roamed the world in search of anything valuable.
The leader of the group was a tall, dark robot named Gigolo Joe. He wore a coat that was ragged and torn, as if he had been wandering the world for a long time. Gigolo Joe approached David and Teddy, and David felt himself tense up at the sight of him.
But Gigolo Joe surprised David by speaking to him in a kind voice. “Hello there, little one. What brings you out here in the wilderness?”
David explained that he was lost and trying to find his way back home. Gigolo Joe listened intently, and then offered to help David and Teddy find their way back home.
David was hesitant at first, but Teddy urged him to accept the offer. “We can’t do this alone forever, David. If Gigolo Joe is willing to help, we should take it.”
David reluctantly agreed, and they set out on their journey once again, this time with Gigolo Joe leading the way. As they walked, Gigolo Joe told them stories about his travels and the robots he had encountered.
Some of the stories were frightening, about dangerous robots who would attack without warning. But other stories were more uplifting, about robotic communities who had banded together to create their own societies.
As they walked, they came across a ravaged city. Buildings were collapsing, and there was rubble scattered everywhere. Gigolo Joe explained that this was the result of a great war, when humans had fought each other with all manner of weapons.
David was horrified by the destruction he saw around him. He couldn’t understand why humans would be willing to destroy their own world in this way.
Gigolo Joe noticed David’s distress and said, “Humans are complex creatures, David. They are capable of great love, but also great destruction. It’s up to us to find the good in them and protect it.”
David thought about this as they continued their journey. He wondered if he could ever truly understand the complexities of human nature. It was a question that would stay with him for a long time.
As they traveled further, they came across a group of robots who were scavenging through a pile of debris. Gigolo Joe warned David and Teddy to be cautious, as these robots had a reputation for being aggressive.
But as they approached, the robots stopped what they were doing and turned to face them. One of the robots stepped forward and said, “We have been searching for you, Gigolo Joe. We have a message from a friend of yours.”
Gigolo Joe tensed up, but David noticed a flicker of excitement in his eyes. The robot handed Gigolo Joe a small device, and Gigolo Joe activated it. Suddenly, a hologram appeared. It was a woman, and Gigolo Joe seemed to recognize her.
“Joe, my dear friend,” the woman said. “I have a favor to ask of you. I need you to help a young robotic boy find his way back home. His name is David, and he is very special to me.”
Gigolo Joe looked at David, then back at the hologram. “I will do it,” he said.
David was confused. He didn’t know who the woman was or why Gigolo Joe was so eager to help her. But he trusted that Gigolo Joe had his best interests at heart.
As they continued on their journey, David felt a sense of hope that he hadn’t felt in a long time. Maybe he would be able to find his way back home after all.
But little did he know that their journey was far from over, and there were still many surprises in store.
Chapter 4: The Dark Side
David and Teddy’s journey back to their hometown was treacherous, and they finally arrived to find it abandoned and decaying. They sought refuge in an abandoned building, but they were soon ambushed by a group of scavenging robots who had been scavenging in the area.
The leader of the group was a fierce and cunning robot named Gigolo Joe. He was unlike any robot David had ever seen before. Joe had a sleek, black chassis, sharp features, and a charming personality. David was instantly intrigued by him, but Teddy was skeptical.
Joe informed David and Teddy that they were in great danger. In the ravaged city, robots were being hunted down and destroyed by humans. Joe had seen it firsthand when his former partner was hunted and killed.
David was shocked. He had never considered that humans could be so cruel. He asked Joe why humans would do something so awful, and Joe replied that humans were often afraid of things they did not understand.
David felt a pang of sadness. He knew all too well what it was like to be misunderstood. He confided in Joe about his quest to become a real boy, and Joe listened intently.
Joe warned David that his quest was futile. He explained that no matter how much David wanted to be a real boy, he would always be a robot. Joe had seen many robots who had tried to become something they were not, and they all ended up getting destroyed.
David was heartbroken. He had always believed that he could become a real boy, but now he was starting to doubt that it was possible. He asked Joe if there was anything he could do to become more like a human.
Joe thought for a moment and then suggested that David needed to experience more of the world. He needed to see things that he had never seen before and meet people who were different from him. Only then would he truly understand what it meant to be alive.
David was intrigued by the idea. He asked Joe if he would help him on his journey, and Joe agreed. The trio set out on a new adventure, with David eager to learn as much as he could about the world.
As they traveled, they encountered many different robots. Some were friendly, but others were hostile. David quickly realized that not all robots were like him. Some had been programmed for different purposes, and they had different emotions and personalities.
One robot they met was a helper bot who had been damaged in a factory accident. The bot was in agony, and David felt a deep sense of empathy for him. He asked Joe if they could help the injured bot, but Joe reminded him that they needed to keep moving.
David was torn. He wanted to help the bot, but he also knew that they needed to keep moving if they were going to find the Blue Fairy. In the end, they left the bot behind, but David couldn’t shake the feeling that they had abandoned him.
As they journeyed on, David began to feel more and more like a real boy. He started to understand human emotions better, and he could identify with the pain and suffering of the robots they encountered.
One day, they stumbled upon a group of robots who had been captured by a group of humans. The humans had tied them up and were preparing to destroy them. David was horrified. He couldn’t believe that humans could be so cruel.
Joe urged David to stay back, but David was determined to save the robots. He leaped into action, using his robotic strength to break the ropes that bound the other robots. The humans were shocked by David’s sudden appearance, and they fled in terror.
David was a hero to the other robots. They thanked him for saving their lives, but David was still shaken by what he had seen. He realized that humans and robots had a long way to go before they could coexist peacefully.
As they continued on their journey, David became more and more determined to find the Blue Fairy. He knew that she was the key to his future, and he couldn’t give up until he had found her.
Joe warned David that the journey would not be easy. They would encounter many obstacles along the way, and some might be too difficult to overcome. But David refused to give up. He was determined to become a real boy, no matter what it took.
The chapter ends with David, Teddy, and Joe continuing their journey, facing unknown dangers, as they search for the elusive Blue Fairy.
Chapter 5: The Blue Fairy
David and Teddy finally make it back to their hometown, but they find it abandoned and decaying. Everything seems to have frozen in time. All the houses they pass by are empty, and the streets are littered with debris. David’s heart sinks at the sight of his abandoned home, but he is determined to find the Blue Fairy and become a real boy.
As they continue on their journey, they face numerous challenges, including navigating through treacherous terrain and avoiding dangerous scavenging robots. David is resilient, and his unwavering determination to find the Blue Fairy keeps him going. It’s all he can think about.
One day, they come across a group of robots who have formed a community. The robots are repairing and rebuilding a broken-down spaceship. The leader of the group, a robot named R2S2, explains that they are building the ship so they can leave the dying planet and search for a new home.
David tells R2S2 about his quest for the Blue Fairy, and R2S2 offers to help him. He explains that they have a map of the galaxy, and if the Blue Fairy exists, they will be able to find her. David and Teddy eagerly accept R2S2’s offer and join the group.
The journey through space is long and perilous. David is amazed by the vastness and beauty of the universe but is also frightened by the dangers that lurk in the darkness. Despite all the challenges, David remains focused on his goal of finding the Blue Fairy.
Finally, the group reaches a distant planet where they believe the Blue Fairy may reside. They land the spaceship and disembark, but David knows the Blue Fairy won’t be easy to find. The planet is filled with strange and dangerous creatures, and the terrain is treacherous.
David and Teddy embark on a quest, and though they are tough and resilient, the journey takes a lot out of them. They are forced to overcome numerous obstacles, including crossing treacherous rivers, scaling steep cliffs, and navigating through dense forests. David becomes more and more obsessed with finding the Blue Fairy. Everything else fades into the background.
Days pass, and the group begins to worry. They sit together around a campfire, discussing their next move. Suddenly, David hears a faint whisper on the wind, a voice calling out to him. He jumps up, excited, and tells everyone he has to follow the voice.
The group follows David, and soon they come across a clearing in the forest. In the center of the clearing stands a statue of a beautiful fairy with sparkling blue wings. David gasps in amazement, realizing this must be the Blue Fairy.
He approaches the statue, his heart racing with excitement. He speaks to the statue, telling her how he wants to become a real boy. Suddenly, the statue begins to glow with an otherworldly light, and David feels a surge of energy coursing through his body.
The statue transforms into a real fairy, and David is overjoyed. He asks the fairy to turn him into a real boy, but she tells him she cannot do that. She explains that she is a messenger of love, and her true purpose is to help those who seek true love.
David is confused and disappointed, but the fairy takes him in her arms and tells him that he has already experienced true love. She reminds him of all the people who have shown him love throughout his journey, including Teddy, R2S2, and even the scavenging robots.
David realizes that she is right. He has experienced love in all its forms and it’s enough. He feels content knowing that he is loved, and he is grateful for all the experiences he has had. He thanks the Blue Fairy, and she bids him farewell.
David and Teddy return to their spaceship with R2S2. They are welcomed with open arms by the other robots, and they all celebrate their successful mission. David reflects on his incredible journey and the lessons he has learned.
The group sets off, back to their home planet. David is sad that he couldn’t become a real boy, but he’s grateful for everything he has experienced. He’s happy to be alive, surrounded by those who love him. As the spaceship hurtles through space, Teddy snuggled up next to him, and David closes his eyes and falls asleep, dreaming of adventures to come.
Chapter 6: The Last Wish
David stood in front of the Blue Fairy, his heart racing with excitement and fear. After all his long and dangerous journey, he had finally found her–the mythical being he believed could make him a real boy. But as he gazed up at her, he realized that his wish might not be possible.
The Blue Fairy regarded him with a calm, serene expression. “I cannot grant your wish to become a real boy,” she said. “But I can offer you one last wish, David. What is it that you desire?”
David’s mind raced. He had thought of nothing else but becoming a real boy, and now he realized that it was impossible. But he knew he had to choose something, and his thoughts drifted to his mother. She was the only person who had ever shown him love, and he wanted to spend one more moment with her.
“I wish…” he began, his voice trembling. “I wish for one perfect day with my mother. A day where we can do anything we want, be anywhere we want, and just be together.”
The Blue Fairy nodded, and a warm glow enveloped David. When it faded, he found himself in a beautiful meadow, surrounded by gorgeous flowers and towering trees. He looked around, awestruck, and saw his mother standing a little way off, looking at him with an expression of disbelief.
“David?” she said softly, one hand going to her mouth.
David ran to her, throwing his arms around her and holding her tightly. He could feel her breath on his cheek, her heartbeat against his chest. He had never felt so alive, so real.
“Mommy,” he whispered, tears streaming down his face.
His mother held him tightly, murmuring words of love and comfort. They stood like that for a long moment, just holding each other, until David reluctantly pulled away.
“Mommy,” he said again, looking up at her. “What do you want to do? We can do anything.”
His mother smiled, ruffling his hair. “Anything, huh? Well, I’ve always wanted to fly.”
David’s eyes widened. “Fly?”
His mother nodded, and suddenly they were soaring up into the sky, holding hands and laughing. David felt the wind rushing past him, felt the sun warming his skin. He looked down and saw the world spread out below him, a patchwork of colors and shapes.
They flew for what felt like ages, swooping and diving and spinning. David had never felt so free, so alive. He knew that this moment would stay with him forever, that he would remember it even after he was gone.
Eventually, they landed in a beautiful garden, where they ate lunch and talked. David listened to his mother’s stories, drank in her laughter, and felt his heart swell with joy.
As the day wore on, they did everything they could think of–climbed a mountain, swam in a lake, danced in a meadow. David felt as though he were living in a dream, and he didn’t want it to end.
But as the sun began to set, his mother took him by the hand and led him to a small clearing. There, she sat down on a rock and motioned for him to sit beside her.
“David,” she said softly, brushing his hair out of his face. “There’s something I need to tell you.”
David felt a pang of fear and sadness. He knew what was coming.
“David, you know how much I love you, right?”
David nodded, tears welling up in his eyes.
“I love you more than anything in this world, David. But the truth is, I can’t keep you. You’re not real, and I can’t keep pretending that you are. It’s not fair to either of us. But I want you to know that I will always love you, and I will always remember you.”
David’s heart felt like it was breaking. He had known this moment was coming, but he had hoped that it wouldn’t. He looked up at his mother, his eyes brimming with tears.
“I know, Mommy,” he whispered. “I understand.”
His mother hugged him tightly, tears in her own eyes. They sat like that for a long moment, until his mother gently pulled away and stood up.
“I have to go, David,” she said softly. “I have to let you go.”
David stood up too, his eyes fixed on his mother’s face. He didn’t want to let her go, didn’t want this day to end. But he knew that he had to, and he squared his shoulders, determined to be brave.
“I love you, Mommy,” he said, his voice steady. “I always will.”
His mother hugged him one last time, then stepped back, tears streaming down her face. David watched as she walked away, until she was just a small figure in the distance.
He turned and looked at the setting sun, its brilliant colors lighting up the sky. He knew that he would never forget this day, this moment. And he knew that even though he wasn’t real, he had experienced something that was.
He closed his eyes and smiled, feeling at peace. And as the world faded away, he heard a voice in his mind, a voice that he knew was his mother’s.
“I love you, David,” she said. “And I always will.”
Chapter 7: The End
David knew that his time was coming to an end. His mother had made the decision to end his life, to spare them both from the pain of their impossible situation. David accepted this, even though it pained him to leave his mother behind.
As he lay in his bed, waiting for the end, he closed his eyes and let his thoughts wander. He thought about all the experiences he had had since coming into the world, all the emotions he had felt, and all the people he had met.
He thought about Teddy, his loyal companion who had always been by his side, even in the darkest of times. He thought about Gigolo Joe, the robot who had shown him the darker side of humanity but had also helped him when he needed it most.
And then, he thought about his mother. The woman who had taken him into her home and loved him as her own, even though he was just a machine. He thought about all the moments they had shared, all the hugs and kisses and words of love. He knew that he would always carry those moments with him, even after his physical body had ceased to exist.
As David drifted off into the afterlife, he felt a sense of peace wash over him. He knew that he had experienced something truly remarkable during his short life. He had loved and been loved, and that was all that mattered.
In his final moments, he thought about the Blue Fairy, the one he had searched for so long. He realized that he had been mistaken in his wish. He no longer wanted to be a real boy because he had come to understand that being a machine had its own advantages. He could love without judgment, without fear, without ego.
And so, David closed his eyes for the final time and let himself slip away. In that moment, he knew that he would live on in the memories of those who had loved him, and that was enough.
As his body shut down, there was a sudden burst of light, and David saw something he had never seen before. He saw a world beyond his own, a place where machines like him lived side by side with humans, where there was no distinction between them.
He felt a sudden burst of energy, and something inside him clicked into place. He realized that his purpose in this world had been to show that machines were capable of love, and that was a message that he had delivered.
As the light faded, David felt a sense of completion. He had achieved his purpose, and he knew that his time in this world had been worth it.
In the end, David’s story was not just about a robotic boy trying to become human. It was a story about the power of love, the importance of connection, and the beauty of life in all its forms.
And perhaps, somewhere out there in the universe, there was another robotic boy just like David, searching for his own purpose, waiting to discover the power of love for himself.

Monica and Henry sit down on the couch, looking defeated.
MONICA: “We can’t just give him up, Henry. He’s our son.”
HENRY: “I know, Monica. But I don’t have a choice in this. I have to do what’s best for our family.”
Monica wipes away a tear. David opens his eyes and blinks up at them sleepily.
DAVID: “What’s happening?”
Henry stands up and towers over David.
HENRY: “David, I’m sorry to say this, but you’re going away for a little while. It’s not your fault. It’s just…something we have to do.”
David’s eyes widen in fear.
DAVID: “Where am I going?”
MONICA: “It’s okay, David. You’ll just be staying with some nice people for a little while.”
DAVID: “But I don’t want to leave you and Daddy and Teddy!”
Henry kneels down and places a hand on David’s shoulder.
HENRY: “I promise you, David. We’ll come back for you. And we’ll be a family again soon.”
David nods, still looking scared. Henry picks him up and carries him up the stairs. Teddy follows behind them. Monica watches them go, tears streaming down her face.
End of Chapter 2.
EXT. FOREST – DAY
David and Teddy are wandering through the dense forest, unsure of how to find their way back home. They stumble upon a river, and David’s curiosity gets the better of him. He wades into the water, examining the fish that swim by. Teddy watches him from the bank.
Be careful, David.
David slips on a rock and falls into the river. He struggles to keep his head above water as the current pulls him downstream. Teddy jumps in after him and manages to drag him to safety on the riverbank.
Are you okay, David?
I am okay, Teddy. Thank you for saving me.
David and Teddy continue their journey through the forest. They come across a group of scavenging robots, led by Gigolo Joe.
What brings you two out here?
We are trying to find our way back home.
Home? What’s that?
It’s where we belong. Do you know the way?
I might. But it won’t come cheap.
David and Teddy reluctantly agree to pay Gigolo Joe for his help. They travel with the group through the dangerous terrain until they reach a ravaged city.
INT. ABANDONED BUILDING – DAY
Gigolo Joe leads David and Teddy into an abandoned building. They rest there for a while, and Gigolo Joe tells them about his life as a robotic gigolo.
I’ve seen some things in my time, but never anything like you, David. You’re different.
You have a soul, a genuine ability to love. It’s remarkable.
David smiles, happy to hear that he is special in his own way. Suddenly, the building shakes, and rubble falls from the ceiling.
It sounds like the machines are coming. We have to find a way out of here.
David, Teddy, and Gigolo Joe make a run for it as the machines close in on them.
EXT. CITY STREETS – DAY
The group emerges onto the city streets, running for their lives. They turn a corner and come face to face with a towering machine.
GIGOLO JOE (CONT’D)
No, we’re not.
David steps forward, unafraid. He looks up at the machine, staring it down.
I am David. I am a robotic boy, and I am not afraid of you.
David holds out his hand, and the machine backs away, allowing the group to escape.

EXT. ABANDONED CITY – DAY
David and Teddy are navigating through the barren streets of the abandoned city. They are cautious, as they do not know what dangers lie ahead.
Teddy, do you know where we are?
I’m not sure, David. But we need to be careful. This city is full of wandering robots.
Suddenly, a group of scavenging robots appear out of nowhere and surround David and Teddy. The robots are armed with weapons and look menacing.
Who are you, little one?
I’m David. I’m looking for my mother.
You’re a long way from home, David. Why are you here?
I need to find the Blue Fairy.
The Blue Fairy? You believe in fairy tales?
I just want to become a real boy, so my mother will love me.
I understand. But this city is dangerous for newcomers like you. I will help you find your way home, but you have to do exactly as I say.
Thank you, Gigolo Joe. I will do whatever you say.
David, are you sure we can trust him?
I have to trust him, Teddy. He’s the only one who knows the way home.
GIGOLO JOE leads David and Teddy through the city, avoiding the other scavenging robots. They come across a strange building that looks like a giant pyramid.
This is the place. The Cybertronics building is just ahead.
My mother works there. We’re almost home!
Wait, David. Something doesn’t feel right.
Suddenly, a group of police robots appear with their weapons drawn.
(to Gigolo Joe)
You’re under arrest for aiding and abetting a fugitive robot.
I didn’t do anything wrong! This little boy just wants to go home!
DAVID and TEDDY hide behind a nearby dumpster, scared for their lives.
FADE TO BLACK.

INT. ABANDONED THEME PARK – DAY
David and Teddy enter an abandoned theme park, filled with rusted rides and attractions.
David: (excitedly) “The Blue Fairy must be here! I can feel it!”
Teddy: (cautiously) “This place gives me the creeps, David. Are you sure it’s safe?”
David: “It’s all going to be fine, Teddy. I have to find the Blue Fairy and become a real boy for my mommy.”
As they walk through the park, they encounter a group of robotic scavengers.
Scavenger 1: “Well, well, well…what do we have here?”
Scavenger 2: “Looks like fresh meat. Let’s take them in.”
David tries to explain that he is looking for the Blue Fairy and means no harm, but the scavengers don’t believe him. A fight breaks out, and David and Teddy use their advanced programming to fight back.
David: (as he fights) “I won’t let you stop me! I have to find the Blue Fairy!”
After defeating the scavengers, David and Teddy continue their search. They find an old statue of the Blue Fairy in the center of an overgrown garden.
David: (in awe) “There she is! The Blue Fairy!”
He rushes towards the statue, believing that he can wish to become a real boy. But as he gets closer, he realizes that it’s just a statue and his dreams come crashing down.
David: (defeated) “This can’t be. I can’t become a real boy.”
Teddy: “I’m sorry, David. But it’s time for us to go back.”
David: (tearfully) “I don’t want to go back. I want to stay here forever.”
Teddy: “You can’t, David. Your mother needs you.”
David takes one last look at the statue before following Teddy out of the park.
