Aurora – Twisted Robot Love Story

Robert Kouba is a 20-year-old director from Switzerland. He’s trying to make a movie.

It’s a twisted robot love story about a young man who wakes up 60 years after a car accident only to find himself lost in a dystopian world run by machines.

Aurora is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film, set in 2080 – 60 years after machines have taken over the world.

Our story follows Andrew (Julian Schaffner), who encounters a car accident on the day of the uprising, in 2020. He wakes up 60 years later, in a world where the human race is almost extinct.

On his path, he comes across a girl named Calia (Jeannine Wacker), who ventures north to reach a long-rumored stronghold called Aurora, the last human reserve. While on constant watch for the machines, they develop feelings for each other until a horrendous discovery tears their relationship apart.

Andrew is not human.
