Synopsis

This feature-length project, which plays upon tools of genres like sci-fi, horror and thriller, takes place in near future, in a fictional world very similar to ours. The main character is Viliam Proč (Proč means Why in Czech) – an extraordinary, renowned and genius scientist and engineer in the field of artificial intelligence and robotics, who used to work on research of an artificial human being – an android. But at some point, out of fear of what he might create, Viliam left the research project and went into voluntary isolation in his apartment, where he has been inventing and making innocent gadgets and harmless robotic toys.
