Drew is a computer geek who loves to build things out of electronic scraps that other people throw out. He has developed an amazing new Robot that works on a unique power source — all from parts he found while dumpster diving. Hope is a wealthy Hispanic girl with busy parents. She certainly never planned to dig in trash heaps for robot pieces — but she learns to enjoy it. The two unlikely friends end up on a wild adventure while trying to save their sticky robot from a greedy scientist. Along the way they learn important lessons about family, friendship, and the power of skunk scent.
