Wear and tear of an ordinary robot girl in Vienna in the near future.

Ten-year-old Elli looks like a girl, but underneath her porcelain skin is a body made of wires and plastic. For her owner, however, Elli has a different value. He projects memories into her, but also feelings and desires that can take on distinctly darker shades. Austrian director Sandra Wollner’s highly provocative and aesthetic science fiction explores the power of memories, longing, but also emptiness.
