Blip is a robot who spends her days plugged into her computer. Due to a power outage, she trips over the cord and falls outside. As Blip ventures into the unknown, she discovers a vibrant world of color and friendship has been just outside her door this whole time. Blip may love being plugged into her computer, but she learns that going outside is way more exciting.
