In the beginning of the wild robot, a robot named ROZZUM, Roz for short, crashed on an island after a terrible storm. Curious otters turn him on, and ROZ think the place is home.
Roz was exploring, and an accident happened. Rain started pouring while Roz was exploring and climbing the cliffs. Rocks fell and landed on gooses and eggs. There was one egg and Roz took it. It hatched and Roz named it brightbill after it thought Roz was his mother. Together, they explore the island.
Brightbill and the robot do not have a home, so they ask beaver to make them one. Beaver says yes, then they decide to make a garden. They make one and everyone drops there for fertile. Brightbill wants to fly, so one day the robot decides to teach the goosling.
Roz encountered the bears. They were rather mean to Roz. As Roz was fighting for her life, the mother bear came and stopped the fight. As this was happening, brother bear fell backwards and tumbled off the ledge. Mother bear thought he died, but his teeth caught a branch. Roz helped him, and during the fight his leg got torn off. Beaver helped and made him a new leg.
It is now winter, and the animals are suffering. However, Roz decided to built several lodges and made a rule that there is no killing other animals in the lodges. Thanks to Roz, animals are safer.
Spring is here! After a long and harsh winter, the skies are clear and you can go outside without freezing. Cute little Brightbill swooped down to Roz and sat on his shoulder. He told her about all the things they want through; the good stuff, and the bad stuff. Roz was happy to have brightbill back.
