Synopsis

As it turns out, an Artificial Intelligence translator tool has a mind of its own. It translates what it hears without questioning accuracy or meaning. Its hilarious mistakes and misinterpretations make it a creative tool for improvisation. It changes the intentions and meaning of the spoken word into a new layer of reality that could not otherwise exist. The result is humorous, confusing and questionable. If this kind of intelligence effects daily communication and would eventually develop free will, human creativity becomes challenged in unpredicted ways.
