EN - After being alone on guard for more than 6,000 days, an elite robotic soldier encounters his first contact. But things don’t go as planned... The soldier struggles with an existential crisis: he no longer seems to have any purpose.

FR - Ce film suit l’histoire d’un soldat d’élite robotisé. Après avoir été seul à la garde pendant plus de 6000 jours, il fait une première rencontre. Mais les choses ne se déroulent pas comme prévu... Ne vous fiez pas à son aspect de jeu vidéo : ce film est un drame psychologique. L’histoire s’inspire des certains éléments de la tragédie shakespearienne lorsque le personnage se trouve confronté à une crise existentielle : surtout lorsque les fonctions de notre héros semblent ne plus avoir aucune raison d’être...
