In a last desperate effort, some young people are brought in to help on the farm.

Director Brian De Palma takes the Iraq War film Redacted one step from the Hollywood mainstream and glossy neo-noir films, with which he had occupied himself with in recent years, to a deep political, provocative and socio-critical works that also challenges the cinematic conventions.

The film is based on a real event that shook the world in 2006. 

In the film My robot brother, the lonely 12-year-old Alberte is given the perfect birthday present: the newest humanoid model on the market, Konrad, who looks and acts completely as if he were human.
