Abstract:

It is the middle of the 21st century. Extremely sophisticated robots do everything from nannying to prostitution, supplying the illusion of feeling, but true emotion has eluded the android builders. Until Professor Hobby builds David, a robot boy who can really love. In the same manner that some people substitute pets for more demanding human relationships, the Swinton's try to fill the void left by the illness (and subsequent cryogenic animation) of their young son, with David. Unlike a pet, however, David requires more than taking without giving, and his plight illustrates the dangers inherent when dog-substitutes demand giving in return.
