In the future robots have become commonplace in society, functioning like maids in our homes and working in our streets.  Occasionally these robots malfunction and must be disabled by the police's 'Runaway' squad.  Usually this means throwing a switch, but when a number of robots become blatantly homicidal, Runaway officer and robotic expert Jack R. Ramsay (Tom Selleck) takes charge.

 

An evil genius named Charles Luther (Gene Simmons) has mass-produced circuit boards used in constructing robots.  These boards are not like others though: their chips include special instructions to kill.  Ramsay must find Luther and seize the boards' templates before more killer robots can be manufactured.
