This 3-D computer animation is a drama of obsolete technologies. The main character, the Floppy Disk, negotiates her differences with the technology of today and that of "a time past." Having been rejected by G4, the Floppy Disk gains acceptance by the Old Mac. The G4 is defeated. The Floppy and Old Mac emerge victorious.
