Man/Woman Versus the Machine
3 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Most of society tries to go about their own business. But some destructive machines, whose purpose is to stand up for the oppressed, have formed a treaty with the government. They have a place in the desert where they can exist, but they send enhanced spies into the regular society to see what is going on. Two people become the center of all this and they are pursued relentlessly. Lots of action in this short thriller.
