In the year 2017, the world has been transformed into a dystopian wasteland where everyday activities and skills such as martial arts have become new areas of high demand due to violence and crime. The protagonist of the movie, Sam Treadwell, played by David Andrews, is a successful business executive with a fetish for retro technology and old-fashioned ways of life. He dreams of one day owning a Cherry 2000, a perfect robotic companion that fulfills all his romantic desires. His current "wife", a seemingly reliable model called Edith, has been on the fritz for some time and it's time for a new model.
When his beloved Cherry 2000 malfunctions during a bathtub tryst, Sam embarks on a quest to find a replacement. He comes across a man who claims to know the exact location of Cherry 2000, said to reside in a lawless wasteland beyond the San Bernardino Valley that is dubbed "Zone 7".
However, the wasteland is also a populating by ruthless gangs who make life difficult for anyone who ventures there. After narrowly escaping a run-in with one such gang, Sam meets E. Johnson, played by Melanie Griffith, a tough-as-nails rust-mech whose job is to find and retrieve robotic parts for her clients.
E. Johnson initially refuses Sam's request for aid in finding Cherry 2000 but she is tempted by the promise of a large payout. In the end, she agrees to lead Sam through the dangerous Zone 7, with the understanding they will share the money and the replacement Cherry 2000. The journey is fraught with close calls, gun fights, and other heroics, as the pair encounter several obstacles along their way.
The heart of the story is the relationship that develops between Sam and E. Johnson throughout their adventures in finding the Cherry 2000. Although, at first, they seem to be complete opposites and there is an element of mutual suspicion, they eventually learn to appreciate and rely on one another. As they make their way through the various encounters, their attraction to one another grows. Melanie Griffith gives an amazing performance as an action hero, exuding confidence and sex appeal.
As well as being a love story, the movie also has strong messages about ethics and values, adding a philosophical layer to the plot. The portrayal of the post-apocalyptic wasteland is gritty and realistic, grounded in the tropes of the Western genre.
