In the distant future, WALL-E (Ben Burtt), a lonely trash compactor robot, industriously goes about his job on a polluted, deserted Earth; humankind has long abandoned the planet in favor of luxury space stations. When the winsome ultra-modern robot EVE (Elissa Knight) arrives on Earth in search of new life, WALL-E offers her a small green seedling he has found. EVE then returns to the Axiom space ship, and a love-struck WALL-E chases after her. Will this romance ever blossom?
