With danger looming, the only thing that can protect the citizens of Bay City is MTX, a 120-foot robot that only Ryan has the ability to control. First, Ryan must assemble a team that, together, has the skills needed to activate the complicated inner-workings of MTX." Raymond Cham, Jr. also stars as Ryan's older brother Mark with Kamran Allahverdy and Robbie Tucker as Ryan's two friends Harris and Spyder, respectively.
