Alice, a 60cm tall care robot with a doll-like face, is designed to provide companionship and assistance to elderly people living alone. Alice has sophisticated enough AI to hold conversations, listen and react to stories. This intimate and touching documentary follows three women in their 80s who spend time with Alice in a pilot study.
