Following the tragic end of its military career, a disabled robot war-veteran finds its home among humans in the tender care of an old lady, and hire in her hair salon for cats. But can this ruthless killer leave its destructive past behind, once faced with the cat-based challenges that life throws at it?
A Robot is a Robot is a sombre and quietly comedic short movie, that will make inordinate amounts of air shoot from your nose, while making you ask questions like “is genuine change possible?” and “how much hair simulation is too much?”
A Robot is a Robot is directed by Emil Friis Ernst and Nilas Røpke Driessen and was produced with the support of the Open Workshop.
