Alice Cares (Ik ben Alice)

Dutch original version, with French subtitles

Alice is a “carebot”, a robot designed to take care of people, in this case elderly people. A university research group tries to discover how Alice should talk and react to stem the effects of loneliness on elderly women. During several weeks Alice visits three women who accepted to take part in the experiment. The outcome is surprising, for all involved. An astonishing look into the future.
