A group of tenants in an apartment block are being forced to move out so that it can be demolished.

The tenants are reluctant to move, so the developers hire a local gang to 'persuade' them to leave.

Fortunately, visiting alien mechanical life-forms come to town.

When they befriend the tenants, the aliens use their extra-terrestrial abilities to defeat the developers.

When the building is engulfed in flames, all seems lost, but the aliens have a few more tricks up their metallic sleeves.
