Released in Germany as Der Ideale Untermeiter, this film was ostensibly aimed at the kiddie trade. Curiously, the themes explored within its 98 minutes are not altogether suitable for children. The central character is a lonely young boy who befriends a genial robot. In order to separate the two, the boy's parents agree to subject their son to hospital shock treatment! Producer/director/writer Wolf Schmidt also finds time to play a leading role in this curious film.
