In a provincial city—used to be a robot production base for a consumer electronics company and has been hallowed out due to yen’s appreciation—only a small laboratory remains now. After the death of father, who was a researcher of advanced robots, his three daughters still live in the city. Adapted from Chekhov’s masterpiece, Three Sisters, this latest work of “Robot Theatre Project” relentlessly portrays the future of the Japanese society.
