Brian and Charles

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The story of an unlikely friendship forged in isolation. After a particularly harsh winter Brian goes into a deep depression; completely isolated and with no one to talk to, Brian does what any sane person would do when faced with such a melancholic situation, he builds a robot. Charles is that robot.
While life is pretty rosy for a while, tensions begin to rise between the pair. Partly due to the fact that Charles has the cognitive ability of a 4-year-old child and completely due to the fact that he keeps eating Brian's cabbages. Things soon come to a head and Brian is forced to make a decision he may soon come to regret.
