A look at people who live with silicone partners, friends or children – lives on the edge of reality and fantasy.

Love takes many forms. Where does the border lie and what gives others the right to judge who you have chosen to love? This documentary offers a look into the seemingly bizarre lives of several US households containing members made of silicone. Gradually, however, it turns out that by observing these unusual bonds, the film has something essential to say about love, loneliness, secrecy and the (in)tolerance of the surrounding world. Commenting on John and his silicone wife, Jackie, one of the onlookers in the park says: "They are different, they are odd, but that does not always mean they are bad." This silicone romance will surprise those who say they have seen everything.
