After a particularly harsh winter, Brian (David Earl) -- depressed, isolated, and with no one to talk to -- does what any sane person would do when faced with such a melancholic situation: he builds a robot.
Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he's invented Charles (Chris Hayward), an artificially intelligent automaton who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages.
What follows is a humorous and entirely heartwarming story about friendship, family, finding love, and letting go.
"It's hard not to enjoy something like Brian and Charles where the core themes are ones of friendship and learning to live with one another's foibles." —James Berardinelli, ReelViews
