In the Lego universe, populated by anthropomorphic minifigures, the evil Lord Business finds a super-weapon called the “Kragle”. The wizard Vitruvius attempts to stop him, but is blinded by Business’s robots. Before Business leaves with the weapon, Vitruvius prophesies that someone called “The Special” will find the “Piece of Resistance”, a brick capable of stopping the Kragle.

Eight-and-a-half years later, in the city of Bricksburg, ordinary construction worker Emmet Brickowski notices a mysterious woman searching for something at his construction site. When he investigates, Emmet falls into a hole and finds the Piece of Resistance. Compelled to touch it, Emmet experiences vivid visions and passes out. He awakens with the Piece of Resistance attached to his back, in the custody of Good Cop/Bad Cop, Lord Business’s lieutenant.

The woman, who introduces herself as Wyldstyle, rescues Emmet, believing him to be the Special, and takes him to meet Vitruvius in the Old West. Emmet learns Wyldstyle and Vitruvius are “Master Builders”[11] – people capable of building anything from their imagination without the need of instructions – who oppose Business. Wyldstyle explains that Business wants to use the Kragle (a tube of Krazy Glue with a weathered label) to freeze the world into perfection. Though disappointed to find Emmet is not a Master Builder, Wyldstyle and Vitruvius are convinced of his potential when he recalls visions of a seemingly human deity referred to as “The Man Upstairs”…
