A robot of the future goes up against a common Indian soldier
Simple soldier meets super robot in a good cause!
Imagine a robot on a mission to capture a box of nuclear material, for safe disposal and got the wrong one? Or if you were a soldier charged with protecting that box and were up against an invincible enemy with technology that you never dreamt existed?
Julia, a robot, is sent to track nuclear material that is being smuggled across the Pakistan border into India. She has to navigate her way through a hostile village, dodge terrorists and cope with her own mistakes. She has infrared vision, can move fast, has access to infinite computing resources thanks to the cloud and is self-repairing.
A contingent of the Indian Army on the same mission do not know Julia is on the same track. Private Bari Lal, of the same contingent, knows how to follow orders. He has no life after his Sita was raped by the son of the village landlord and killed herself. Yet, sometimes, following orders means taking the initiative.
