When young Atari Withers gets annoyed with the little robot that follows him everywhere, he tries to leave it, sell it and smash it up… But this robot is more than just a toy.
I recognized the robot immediately. My sister has been on one of those for a large portion of her life. 33 years and 3 kidneys later she's living a full life again. If it wasn't for that machine she wouldn't be here. It's not an easy road to live, and she can attest that there is truly a love/hate relationship with them, but it is life. Thank you for posting this. It's a great short and powerful reminder how fragile we are.
