In this sci-fi drama, humanoid robots and real astronauts are sent on a mission by an electronics company. Based on the science-fiction novel by Stanislaw Lem, this film tells the story of a mixed group of superhuman robots ("finite non-linears") and humans who venture into space under the guidance of a human commander, who is not informed which of his crew members are biological in origin, and which are robots. The emotionless robots are assigned the lions' share of duties, but when a crisis erupts requiring a decision, the robot leader and the human leader have a major fight resulting in the robot's demise.
