In the 29th century, WALL-E is the last still active robot of his kind cleaning the polluted and dead Earth from endless garbage. Along with his pet, a cockroach, he spots a strange white robot EVE land on Earth and falls in love with her. When EVE finds a plant growing on Earth, she and WALL-E are picked up by a spaceship to the mother ship Axiom, where all the humans have been living for the past 700 years, ever since they left the polluted Earth. The captain is fascinated by the plant and finds out that his new mission is to bring humans back to their home planet since it's now inhabitable again. Even though a corrupt computer wants to destroy the plant, the captain manages to defeat it and bring back people to Earth.
