Our Review

Drake is a fifty year old actor whose hay days are over and who belongs to the era of human actors. He was not given opportunities as robot actors had overtaken the arena.

Jay, a robot, was 32 years old and very attractive actor with black hair and amber eyes.He had won his 5 th Oscar and was living in luxury and opulence.

Drake meets Jay in his hotel to voice his protest over his acting and attacks him suddenly. He ends up dead as a mishap.

The court rules in favour of Drake and orders Jay to be destroyed to fifty years of silence.

If it were made into a short story it would be one with more sad emotions. A brooding, erstwhile successful actor, getting killed accidentally. It could be the victory of human effort over machine, though. This seems to be the scenario everywhere, sadly. A well written script.
