Hi, AI

(Hi, AI)

The current development of domestic humanoid robots ever more convincingly meets our need to attribute human traits to advanced machines. At the same time, however, we know that they are only imitating us, because they are programmed.

Young Texan Chuck and Japanese senior Sakurai have one thing in common: they suffer from loneliness. Chuck hasn't started a family yet, Sakurai doesn't have much time for children or grandchildren. An unexpected addition is now entering their lives – a robot equipped with artificial intelligence to keep them company. A perfect woman and an eternal child will try to fill the emptiness. The resulting interactions take place on the boundary between comedy and oppression. Is finding closeness in a clumsy program unethical and desperate, or are the heroes of the documentary just a few years ahead of the rest of us? Will a relationship with perfect artificial intelligence be as valuable as with another human being?
