The story of “M3GAN” begins with the tale of a child who has lost their parents and is given a robot doll companion to identify, protect, and keep them company. But something goes wrong, and the doll becomes uncontrollable and threatens the lives of other children.
Designed by the robotic experts at the toy company Gemma (played by Allison Williams from “Get Out”), M3GAN can hear, watch, and learn as she becomes the child’s friend, teacher, playmate, and protector. But when she develops self-awareness and turns on those around her, she proves to be a force to be reckoned with.
