High school sophomores Mae (Kelli Berglund) and Gabby (China Anne McClain) are super-smart, tech-savvy best friends who are outcasts at their school. When Mae is embarrassed at school by popular girl Nevaeh, Gabby offers to create a virtual boyfriend with just a few strokes of the keyboard and a wireless connection. What Mae and Gabby don’t realize, is that the computer they use is set up to generate a robotic super soldier, which they have inadvertently activated in the form of Albert (Marshall Williams), a macho yet sensitive super cute hunkalicious boy.
