Japanese government, academic and scientific institutions, along with industry leaders are investing time and money developing the technology to create a humanoid robot workforce. More than the single motivation of an aging population and the lack of younger workers fuel this extraordinary development. This film explores Japan's unique cultural attitudes, artistic sensibilities and technological differences that might make their robotic leap possible. J, ROBOT gives us a glimpse of past and present threads weaving the future fabric of what might become the world's first "post-human" society.
