New York, the striking 1980s rhythms are blasting from the loudspeakers. Dog spends his evenings mundanely and solitarily – a microwave dinner and aimless channel surfing. When he sees a commercial for a robot companion, he does not think long and makes a call. The package with Robot is soon in front of his door. Dog and Robot immediately become inseparable. But then, the last day of summer on the beach changes everything. 

»Over ten years ago, when I was embarked on my chimerical, but f inally real, endeavor of making the f ilm Blancanieves, I came across the graphic novel Robot Dreams. by Sara Varon. I was gripped f rom the f irst pages. I didn’t read it, I devoured it. Like all good tales, its story took me to an unknown but recognizable place, where I felt at home. I was captivated by its temporal structure, it made me laugh and cry, and most importantly it made me reflect on f riendship. While reading it I remembered my great f riends, the ones who are still by my side, but above all, those who moved away or whom I lost along the way… I can say that Robot Dreams has reconciled me with my conflicting feelings about the loss of loved ones. Accepting and recovering f rom loss, undoubtedly, is the intellectual motor and the emotional reason for making the animated version of Robot Dreams.«
