In an environment where androids are met with hostility and outrage by human beings, the award-winning "Kill Al" tells the story of Femtel 216 and Femtel 303, two female synthetic beings confined to work in a sub-basement of an auditing firm. Each discovers their own humanity – one through art, the other through abuse and the aggressive emotions that follow thereafter. Their thirst for revenge, however, is restricted by internal directives that forbid them from harming or going against the will of humans.

Film completion date: October 2017.
