A hilarious satire of television and a touching romantic comedy. It begins in a television studio where a hospital soap opera is being taped.

One actor starts speaking gibberish; he is an actoida robot, and his programming is off-kilter. Adam, the young nephew of the producer and an aspiring writer who worships the director (once a great movie director and now a broken-down has-been), is on the set.

Adam starts chatting with Jacie Tripplethree, the actoid (serial number JC333) playing the nurse and finds, to his surprise, that not only can she carry on a conversation but, due to what she calls a fault in her programming, she has a creative imagination.

Adam wants to build a new television series around her, but the studio will not hear of it. He also finds he is falling in love with the charming robot! Will Adam get the green light on his series? Will love prevail?
