Synopsis
The Japanese Emotional Robot Paro is revolutionising the treatment of dementia patients and causes a massive controversy about the pros and cons of Emotional Robotics within Elderly Care. A scientific excursion into advanced dementia therapy, exploring bads and goods of a computerised baby seal. The plush robot Paro is the documentary’s main character. The narrative thread starts and ends in Bremen, Germany, in an advanced care home – exclusively for people suffering from dementia. The common thread of the documentary are the events at 'Haus O’Land', which acquired an Emotional Robot. With the camera we accompany the therapeutic process step by step. Will Paro be accepted? Loved? Kicked out?
