Storyline

What if a machine, an automaton or a high-tech synthetic android could learn how to love, furthermore, what if a cold robot could sense and have emotions? With this in mind, Abe is programmed to love, and in return, it wants to be loved back. However, when all efforts to connect with its human object of desire fall short, rejection simply does not compute. Can rejection lead to jealousy and then to hatred when Abe's love is scorned?

It Goes Where It Goes
5 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

It's all set out there. A robot who loves but gets none in return, turns to trying to "fix" those that don't love him. Unfortunately, he is a machine and has no expertise in handling human bodies. He is soft spoken. He covers the mouth of the young woman so she is not able to respond in any way. It is a brutal little film.
