zenith 2

Youth series Zenith II tells the story of a modern Romeo & Juliet between a robot and a human. While Benjamin, the robot, wants to program all robots to take over the world, main characters Zoë and Max fall in love. They connect because of their ‘anti-robot’ views. They both want to reveal that robots are fake, different than humans. At gym class, Zoë falls of a climbing rack and only then finds out she’s actually a robot herself! Her whole world is turned upside down and she feels Max now belongs to another group, while she is part of the robots. Is their love strong enough to overcome the differences of the two groups they belong to?
