The premise of the film, in and of itself, is pretty simple: the hero is protecting the pretty girl from her crazy, abusive ex-boyfriend. The sci-fi element, of course, is that the hero has an artificial intelligence implant to help him in his quest to protect the damsel in distress, and the AI inevitably develops sentience and befriends the hero.
Imagine if C3PO was your partner on Law & Order, and you have this sci-fi piece of brilliance that takes place in the lawless state of Jefferson. Fun fact: the area between the northernmost part of California and the southernmost part of Oregon are petitioning D.C. to be declared the independent state of Jefferson, as of this writing. No word yet on how many electoral votes this independent state will get, if any.
