Helene, a beautiful, elegant, wealthy woman, naïvely fighting for the rights of the oppressed, visits a robot-producing factory. She so wants to do good for people and machines that she, with her clumsy idealism, by a sequence of accidents, contributes to a series of catastrophic events. In the meantime, she marries Domino, the self-assured and attractive director of the factory, and becomes the centre of attention of his influential colleagues; however, she does not manage to get what she most wants: children. Because, as a rule, where too many robots are produced there’s a reduced number of people… Omnipotent man loses control of his invention and the billions he is prepared to pay for his rescue become worthless dry leaves for squirrels…In the end it all has to start again from the beginning. Will it be possible?
