Storyline

Thom just wanted to be an astronaut. His girlfriend Celia just wanted to create robots - and for him to not be freaked out by her cyborg hand. How was Thom supposed to know that breaking up with her would make her take out her anger on the rest of humanity using her robots? It seems the only possible way of undoing everything...is to overwrite her memory of what happened 40 years ago. Written by J. Jensen.

technology. and...spice
14 April 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A reasonable story, technology and love story, a lot of holes but a film giving to each viewer small part from what he deserves/expect. and that saves a short film with few ambitions to impress for special effects , using not the most credible story . but the last could be useful . as a kind of spice. robots, fights, resistence and the desire to fix an error from past. and nothing more.
