Logline

Introverted outsiders rarely seem as likeable as they do in this delightful sci-fi buddy comedy set in rural Britain.

After a particularly harsh winter, Brian becomes very depressed. Completely isolated and with no one to talk to, he does what any sane person would do when faced with such a melancholic situation: he builds a robot.
