A little girl wants to play tea parties and wear tutus. Her papa, a big mechanic, does his best to be a fun playmate, but he feels more at home tinkering with his tools. Worried that he is letting his little girl down, he builds a robot to perform “papa duties.” The invention is a great success… perhaps too much so. This adorable film reminds us that the real joy of being part of a family is accepting everyone’s quirky differences – and that nothing can ever replace your own papa.
