Synopsis
Greg Pak directs Robot Stories, a feature film made up of four separate vignettes set in the near future. In "My Robot Baby," Maria (Tamlyn Tomita) and Roy (James Saito) must take care of a robot baby before they can adopt a real one. In "The Robot Fixer," a car accident puts Wilson in a coma. His mother, Bernice Chin (Wai Ching Ho), tries to connect with him by repairing his old collection of toy robots. Her obsessive quest to find missing robot parts is observed by her daughter Grace (Cindy Cheung). In "Machine Love," a Sprout G9 iPerson (Greg Pak) is introduced to an office environment. In "Clay," sculptor John Lee (Sab Shimono) refuses to get scanned, which would merge his memory with a collective consciousness. He struggles to maintain his humanity against the judgement of his son Tommy (Ron Domingo) and wife Helen (Eisa Davis). ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Charming and homemade, ROBOT STORIES is a quartet of tales, all sci-fi-ish and dealing with robotic or computer-generated people and things. The first story has a terrific premise, unfulfilled however, and in too obvious and sentimental a fashion; the second is better because the sentimentality is once-removed. The third is best (fabulous performances and make-up from the two "robots") and the fourth, while offering the most possibilities, doesn't quite deliver. Overall, a pleasant, slight (and thankfully short) evening--and one that shows writer/director/actor Greg Pak as a very talented guy.
