COG is the story of five robots on a mission to rescue their inventor from the corporation that controls them all. One robot named Cog, short for “cognitive development,” looks like a real twelve-year-old boy.
After an accident leaves him damaged, Cog wakes up in an unknown lab – and Gina, the scientist who created and cared for him, is nowhere to be found. Surrounded by scientists who want to study him and remove his brain, Cog recruits four robot accomplices for a mission to find her. Their journey involves much cognitive development in the form of mistakes, but Cog, who was built to learn is willing to risk everything to find his way back to Gina and home.
