In the 21st century, Pinocchio paraphrases the goal of Ann, the robot girl is to become human. During her wonderful journey on the ground, in the air and underwater, she has to face many challenges that help her discover the most important virtues in life. Before the very eyes of the audience, the drawn animation comes to life where performers move together with the projected visuals creating a 3D movie experience.

The main characters are Alfred the playful inventor and his creature Ann the curious robot girl. The story displays the complexity of their relationship, meanwhile, we can get to know Alfred’s different robots, namely Bip Bip the loyal robot ball together with many fantastic creatures, such as Foot-Mushroom, Lolly-Pot and Hand-Whisk. Thanks to their delightful personalities and jolly design the partially drawn and partially real beings turn out to be equally main characters to the performers.
