Prostitute robot dolls roam empty streets, in their daily search for clients. But those whom they were built to service have ceased to exist: humanity was wiped itself out. In a world of action without purpose, cleaners, guards and whores all respond to their programmed tasks until they in turn become defunct.
Malice@Doll is one such prostitute, now in need of repair. In her search for renewal, she becomes aware that her world is being modified, leaving her increasingly open to attack by her former robotic guardians, and in a state of increasing isolation and alienation.
Suffering from attack and ravishing by a grotesque tentacled bionic creature, she is mysteriously transformed into a human being. Overcome with joy and wonder, Malice seeks to transfer this gift through a loving kiss. But with every girl there comes a curse.
Scripted by Chiaki Konaka (Evil Dead Trap 2), this hallucinatory work that mixes horror and sexual degradation with deep spirituality is a unique and moving masterpeice of CGI animation.
Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English Subtitles.
