A mom buys a ‘robot nanny’ to care for her bullied son. But then, he feels a chill to the bone.

Filmmaker Ariel Martin tells the story of the iMom, a humanoid robot who transforms the way parents raise their kids.

In the not-too-distant future, an infomercial touts the iMom — she cooks, she cleans, she’s the first fully-functional mother substitute.

As Catherine talks on the phone while getting ready for a party, her son Sam does bible study homework in the kitchen. As a chicken thaws, Catherine mentions that Sam is being bullied in school. She tries to get him to open up, but it’s obvious she’s more interested in texting. The gap in their relationship is obvious.

Catherine leaves Sam to iMom, but he doesn’t want her. He complains that her cooking is awful. But Catherine, unaware of his pleas for affection, says she’s downloaded new recipes and asks him to give her another chance.

On the way out, Catherine tells iMom to prepare dinner for 8 p.m. In the background, an infomercial continues to tout iMom.

Now home alone, iMom asks Sam if he wants to read his homework to her. When he answers no, she ominously recites Matthew 7:15: “Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly, they are raving wolves.”

Sam finishes the verse and they have a brief moment of connection. She tries to get him to open up about the bullying and reminds him of a meeting with the teachers tomorrow. Instead, he gets upset and walks away.

The baby begins to cry and iMom goes to comfort her as a thunderstorm rages outside.

Suddenly, a surge of electricity knocks out all the appliances, including iMom, in the house. She reboots and goes to the kitchen to prepare dinner.

Meanwhile, Sam goes back to his homework, unaware of the short-circuit. As iMom turns on the stove, a larger surge knocks out the power.

Sam is scared and iMom gives him a hug, reassuring him that the lights will be back at any moment.

When Sam notices another iMom on TV, he suggests she wear some lipstick. He gets some and applies it to her. Then, she gives him a small kiss.

Sam apologizes for his earlier comments and iMom goes to check on the baby. Then, she returns to ask Sam if he is a wolf or a sheep. He points to the sheep. Then, before iMom answers, we look into the crib and see the chicken.

There’s a shocking twist at 11:04…
