Brian lives alone in a remote village in the countryside. Something of an outcast, he spends his spare time in his garage inventing things out of found objects. Without friends or family to rely on, Brian decides to build a robot for company.
Charles is not only Brian's most successful invention, but he appears to have a personality of his own. He quickly becomes Brian's best friend, curing his loneliness and opening Brian's eyes to a new way of living. However, Charles creates more problems than Brian bargained for, and the timid inventor has to face-up to several issues in his life; his eccentric ways, a local bully, and the woman he's always been fond of but never had the nerve to talk to.
A charming, comedic, robot mockumentary, Brian and Charles premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is a heartwarming and humorous story about friendship, family, love and letting go.
