Inspired by early 80s gang movies, Robots tells the story of two rival gangs who engage in their own back-alley version of robot wars, pitting one robot against the other in a battle to the finish. But when one robot chooses compassion over malice, the gang members are forced to question their own hatred and animosity towards each other.
