Jimmy Conlon has tried hard to put his past behind him. He spent most of
his life working for the mob as a hit man, a line of work that has left
him with few friends, an estranged family and a police investigation
always at his back. Jimmy just wants to move on, but when his son shows
up as a potential target, he has no choice but to act. To save his son's
life, Jimmy puts everything on the line and tries to do the right thing
for the first time and maybe the last time in his life.
On the day of his birth, a robot named Chappie is kidnapped by two thieves and taken back to live with their dysfunctional band of misfits. Adopted into this odd family, Chappie grows to be gifted; a prodigy in his own right, and extremely bright with a thirst for living. However, as Chappie gets older, he begins to wonder why he is different from his neglectful parents; and their nefarious needs. Showing more humanity than the human company that surrounds him, Chappie becomes defiant, developing a knock-out personality that will eventually lead him to a higher purpose and happier place.
