Robot Dreams Review: A Tale of Friendship and Circuits

The story begins with a freshly booted-up Robot, whose smile instantly connects with a dog. Their friendship blooms, but fate intervenes cruelly. After a Labor Day beach outing leaves Robot immobilized in the sand, the dog abandons him, unsure how to help.
