Plot Synopsis

AP science and math tests are no sweat for two 10th grade tech whiz kids, Gabby Harrison and Mae Hartley, but fitting in at school doesn't come as naturally. So, using design software that belongs to Mae's father, the girls engineer a high-definition version of Mae's fake boyfriend, Albert, who she's dreamt up as everything a high school girl could want in a guy. However, when Albert comes to life as an advanced robotic soldier, the two best friends soon learn that Mae's father works for a top secret military branch, which is now in pursuit of Gabby and Mae, as well as Albert, to ensure he doesn't fall into the wrong hands. Two songs will be released from the movie: "Something Real" performed by China Anne McClain and Kelli Berglund, and "Stand Out" performed by Sabrina Carpenter. Both singles will be released by Walt Disney Records and available Tuesday, July 29 and Tuesday, August 12, 2014 respectively, on iTunes.
