Synopsis

Barney, a lonely and awkward middle-schooler, finally gets the ‘Bubble Bot’ he’s been pestering his Dad for. A walking, talking, digitally-connected device that will serve as a ready-made best friend. But when his bot-BFF Ron starts to malfunction, there is a risk he might be recalled by the manufacturer and sent to the ‘crusher’.
