While digging a tunnel for a new superhighway, the giant robot ZEO is found frozen in an ice cave. When the dormant robot becomes active, he destroys portions of the highway, but only those built with sub-standard materials. He leaves quality structures unharmed. Many fear Zeo as a monster but others revere him as a blessing in disguise. Who will win, the fearful who would destroy him or the hopeful who would cherish him?
