Set in a distant, but not unrealistic future, where the Earth has become so riddled with trash and pollution that it is no longer livable for humans, the plot focuses on a lovable little robot left behind to collect trash and survey areas, in the hopes of eventually cleaning the planet for the future. This robot, WALL-E, is unlike most, with a big personality and a desire for companionship. This becomes apparent when he meets another robot, EVE, sent to Earth to survey the planet for plant life growth. Despite their difference in purpose and complexity, WALL-E falls in love with EVE and pursues her affection. In doing so, WALL-E finds himself taken back to EVE's base of operations at a space station high above Earth, where much of the film takes place. In this consumerism-filled space metropolis, humanity has found their refuge. But not all is well, as WALL-E finds that the ship's computer may have plans other than the directive to return life to Earth one day. It's up to him to make sure all goes well, and prove his love to EVE.
