In the year 2020 the computer that governs the world secretly builds a ten story robot underground and then sends it to the surface.

They confront the computer as to why it betrayed them and it denies doing so. It says that it is aware that many people distrust computers so it built its replacement in a human shape to reassure people.

A Russian returning to his farm after the war has found the soil to be no good and so he goes prospecting for gold in caves. He comes across invaders from dimension Z but they fear fire, so he holds them back with flames in order to finish constructing a door that will lock them deeper in the cavern while he finishes mining. The soviet authorities seize his gold and demand that he lead them to the source. When they are before the door, they demand it be opened over his protests, and rough him up to seize the key. Outside the cave, he hears their shouts and knows that two evil forces have encountered each other. He muses that he will demand freedom from the premier, and if refused, will open the door a final time to ensure that tyranny perishes from his homeland.
