The ageing society lands more and more elderly people in social isola­tion. For this reason, Alice was invented, a social care robot with a sweet doll’s face. No extra helping hands, but a conver­sa­tion partner who by way of exper­i­ment visits three women who are getting on in years. Initially, the guinea pigs’ in the docu­men­tary are scep­tical, but the increasing inter­ac­tions amaze both the seniors and the team of scien­tists and care special­ists who monitor the experiment.
