"Things are not what they seem in this a modern day fable. A man and a woman meet in unusual circumstances in this dark comedy about life on the edge."
"It’s impossible to find a perfect boyfriend in NYC. But what if you could build one? When the unlucky-in-love Nora meets a brilliant but lonely scientist working on artificial humanoids, she finally has the chance to construct the man of her dreams. But what happens when perfection turns out to be less than perfect? A romantic comedy about love, loss and getting over your fear of Queens."
