CE1 is set in modern Malaysia, revolving around a teen genius named Zaki. His interest in robotics and mechanical engineering isolates him from his peers and the villagers. The boy finds solace in a joint project with another person to create the first-ever Malaysian android robot. The android, CE1, bears witness to the boy’s rite of passage, his first love, and his many accomplishments and misadventures. It also starts to harbour ambitions of its own.
