Adrian is a young scientist who has social acceptance issues and just wants to fit in, so the young boy combines his need for acceptance with his love of science to create a Robot, and that is when the fun begins. The film is a children’s-driven story that was created in homage to 1950s Robot films, French New Wave, and Italian Neo Realism with a budget of $100, one camera, and only two lenses. This film also marks the first feature length film for the writer/Director as well. (From the filmmaker: “I am from Michigan and it was filmed in the region.”)
