Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work. Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his biggest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot 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.

‘a feel-good charmer with a glowing human heart’ – BFI.

‘when the credits roll after an all too brief 90 minutes, viewers are left wanting more, which can’t be a bad thing, and all in all, this is an entertaining tale with a massive metal heart at its core’ – Big Issue North.
