During the Great Depression, a common-man hero, James J. Braddock--a.k.a. the Cinderella Man--was to become one of the most surprising sports legends in history. By the early 1930s, the impoverished ex-prizefighter was seemingly as broken-down, beaten-up and out-of-luck as much of the rest of the American populace who had hit rock bottom. His career appeared to be finished, he was unable to pay the bills, the only thing that mattered to him--his family--was in danger, and he was even forced to go on Public Relief. But deep inside, Jim Braddock never relinquished his determination. Driven by love, honor and an incredible dose of grit, he willed an impossible dream to come true. In a last-chance bid to help his family, Braddock returned to the ring. No one thought he had a shot. However Braddock, fueled by something beyond mere competition, kept winning. Suddenly, the ordinary working man became the mythic athlete. Carrying the hopes and dreams of the disenfranchised on his shoulders, Braddock rocketed through the ranks, until this underdog chose to do the unthinkable: take on the heavyweight champ of the world, the unstoppable Max Baer, renowned for having killed two men in the ring

Chicago, 2035. Detective Del Spooner distrusts robots. But why? The Three Laws of Robotics form a perfect circle of logic and protection for humans--all robots are "3 laws safe" from the instant they roll off the assembly line. When U.S. Robotics founder Dr. Alfred Lanning apparently commits suicide, Spooner is assigned to investigate. It appears that Dr. Lanning, the father of robotics, was murdered by a prototype of the latest generation robot, an NS-5 named Sonny. Dr. Susan Calvin, a specialist in robot psychology is assigned to assist Spooner. She cannot believe that a robot could commit a crime, let alone a murder. That would mean the Sonny has violated the Three Laws. If robots can break the laws, there is nothing to stop them from taking over the world, since humans have grown completely dependent upon them. Perhaps ... they already have?
