An elderly invalid is volunteered for a bizarre science experiment. He is given the ultimate nurse - the Z-001, a robotic bed linked directly to his brainwaves! Science runs amok as the Z-001 transforms into an unstoppable robot that will satisfy its patientís every desire. and smashes out of the hospital and through police barricades en route to a day trip at the beach!
The Z Project was intended to give the new generation a break from caring for the old. The original intenion was to create a machine to care for them without any intervention. At first glance, it looked like an excellent plan, and many of the younger generation approved of its application. But when old Mr. Takazawa become the test subject for the Z-001 machine, Haruko questioned both the tactics of the hospital and the moral implications of the machine. This is just the beginning, as Haruko has not just the hospital, but the odds against her. But then, she discovers an odd quirk about the machine: it uses a biochip, and it eventually acquires a mind of its own!
When the cost of taking care of the elderly becomes too high, why not invent a robotic, nuclear powered bed that can take care of them for you? Sounds logical, right? The government thought so too! But when they nominate Mr. Takazawa without his approval as the test subject, they underestimated the determination of his nurse Haruko to step up in his defense. After all, what is a dedicated nurse to do when she suddenly sees her name on every computer screen asking for help and the bed with Mr. Takazawa in it actually transforms, gets up and follows her back home?! Add a lot of police, an angry government agency, a bunch of elderly over-sexed hackers and a trip to the beach and the mayhem is complete!
