When robots decree planet earth will not survive unless humans are destroyed, they execute 90% of them and send the rest to underground sustainable mines. It is only when Executive Producer Master Bot writes a play that Giles, a human director, is sent up from the mines in the hope that robots will begin to understand the formula of art.
Giles refuses to direct it, but Executive spends an afternoon downloading history and, before his nightly tube of food paste, he has become the greatest artist ever known. Think Oscar Wilde meets Salvador Dali…then cube it.
But because Executive can’t feel, he can’t enjoy art, so he makes a deal with Giles: if Giles is capable of putting on a play that can make robots feel, he will let him live. But if he can’t, he will be executed in front of his cast.
