He will meet in his path, Kara, a domestic android who must take care of the house and Todd’s daughter. After an excess of violence, Kara flees with the little girl and tries to find refuge for androids.

Markus is a domestic android who takes care of Carl, a wealthy retired artist who has a turbulent son who wreaks havoc when he can’t get money to steal drugs. The lives of the three androides are quickly turned upside down by a series of tragic events.
