One rainy day after school he meets this strange man who is actually an android and eventually takes Johnny on an incredible adventure to meet his father who is quite different than Johnny ever expected him to be.
The Android's name is Al and he is in possession of a very powerful artifact and he is being hunted by mechanical robotic constructs from another alternate plane of existence. The artifact has some strange control over the passage of time.
