After beginning to doubt his self-worth and his ability to do anything right, Alphie finally meets a human, Chris, who has been hired to fix the malfunctioning computers in the lab. Chris' patient and accepting approach totally changes Alphie's life. Alphie starts to realize that being different is what makes him special, and soon he is free to use his abilities to their fullest free to be who he was meant to be.
