Deep in the Scottish Highlands, Many years from now ...

Gertie Gif, a lowly cleaning droid from the village of Loch Lan, sets out on an heroic quest to liberate her fellow robo-folk from the curse of a legendary, battery-draining laptop who lives in the castle on the hill.

Will Gertie and her little software-wolf companion succeed in cleaning out the vampire's corrupted heart?

Or will the Curse of Voltoid remain forever hanging over the valley?
