After two hundred years of keeping his inventor’s comatose widow alive, Fred the robot decides they both could use a change. Taking a leap of faith, he packs up their home in Phoenix and the odd couple relocate to The Clam—a once luxurious retirement space station orbiting Pluto. There, The Clam’s in-house alien band The Kunzigs awaken something special in Fred’s ancient companion.
