Робот номер 5, част от група военни роботи, след по-различно третиране получава проблясъци на съзнание. В крайна сметка, се оказва, че той става интелигентен, което само по себе си е катастрофа, защото той изчезва сред обществото, но можейки да чувства и да усеща чувствата на другите. Страхувайки се от репрограмиране, т.е. унищожение, той се опитва да се върне във фабриката, мислейки, че там никой няма да го търси. По пътя се среща със млада жена, която му помага да оцелее.

Na vojenském cvičení zasáhne nového válečného robota předváděného firmou Nova Robotics blesk, který způsobí zkrat a vzápětí se shodou okolností a náhod dostane ven z přísně střeženého objektu. Šéf bezpečnosti, kapitán Schroeder, okamžitě zahájí pátrání, neboť robot číslo pět nereaguje na signály a chová se velmi podivně. Nepozorovaně se dostane do vozu, jehož majitelkou je sympatická Stephany Specková. Když ho dívka objeví, považuje ho za mimozemšťana a pozve do svého domu. Ráno však zjistí, že jde o robota firmy Nova Robotics a oznámí to řediteli firmy. Robot však nechce být chycen a rozebrán, a tak nasedne do dívčina auta a snaží se ujet.

En militærrobot, Nr. 5, får svitset kredsløbene, da den rammes af et lynnedslag. Den begynder at tænke selv og får lyst til at nyde livet som pacifist i stedet for at sprænge kampvogne i luften. Så 'Johnny Five' stikker af og får husly hos den søde pige Stephanie, men militæret har andre planer for den løbske maskine. Heldigvis står ingeniøren Ben og hans kollega klar til at hjælpe den kære robot.

Deutsch
Auf einem amerikanischen Militärgelände werden neue Kampfroboter getestet. Als plötzlich ein Gewitter aufzieht, wird einer der Roboter vom Blitz getroffen. Nr. 5 ist von nun an kein Militärroboter mehr, sondern gerät völlig außer Kontrolle und verschwindet vom Gelände. Er findet Unterschlupf bei Stephanie, einer jungen Tierliebhaberin, und macht große Veränderungen durch: auf einmal empfindet er Neugierde und Angst, kann über Witze lachen und hat gar keine Lust, sich auf Befehl selbst auszuschalten. Schließlich verliebt Nr. 5 sich auch noch in die hübsche Stephanie und löst dadurch einen ganz schönen Wirbel aus Diese hat aber inzwischen das Militär und deren Wissenschaftler über seinen Verbleib informiert. Nr. 5 schwebt in größter Gefahr, denn seine ‘Erzeuger’ haben nur die Zerstörung des außer Kontrolle geratenen Roboters im Sinn.

Η βοήθεια θα έρθει από τον Νιούτον Κρόσμπι, έναν ευγενικό άνθρωπο, και μαζί του θα προσπαθήσει να ξεφύγει από τον στρατό που το αναζητά, αλλά και να πείσει τον δημιουργό του πως αληθινά είναι ζωντανό.

Português
Número 5 é um dos robôs experimentais construídos pelo exército americano, com o objetivo de serem usados na guerra. Após ser atingido por um raio ele ganha vida própria, sem que alguém perceba. O medo de ser reprogramado faz com que deixe a fábrica onde está alojado, para desespero de seus criadores Newton Crosby (Steve Guttenberg) e Ben Jabituya (Fisher Stevens).
