In the future humankind relies heavily on machines, when it all begins to fail they put their faith in a man called Vashto. Vashto braves through the "Iron Door" and confronts what the people of Earth think the problem is which is a saboteur. Vashto shoots said saboteur and leaves him for dead as he flees.
