Story intro

At the film's opening, a voice-over explains that mankind's technological breakthroughs in the development of artificial intelligence and robotics eventually lead to a global war. Afterward, the remnants of humanity struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland while the surviving machines remain hidden. In the wasteland, a Warlord (James Franco), raids a settlement that contains a high-tech lab with an android girl named Ash (Suki Waterhouse). The Warlord activates Ash who opens two different colored eyes, (one blue, one green), that light up when she receives commands through a handheld remote. Elsewhere, in a fertile zone called the Oasis, a young man called the Prince (Jeffrey Wahlberg), sets out on a mission into the wasteland in search of medicine to help his sick mother the Queen (Lucy Liu). His only clue to finding it is a faded postcard of a place called "Paradise Beach" where the rumored cure resides. The Prince and his friends who accompany him, stop at Love Town, a wasteland settlement that deals in sex slaves and is run by the pimp "Big Daddy Love Lord" (Snoop Dogg). There they try to get directions to Paradise Beach but attract the attention of the Raiders. The Prince's friend Rico (Ben Youcef), drives off the Raiders with a handgun - a rare and valuable item in the wasteland. Big Daddy approaches with an offer to meet with someone who can help them, but it ends up being a trap set up by the Warlord where Ash captures the Prince and kills his friends. The Warlord then forces the Prince into taking them back to the Oasis, during which Ash, (who knows the Warlord will kill everyone), decides to save him.
