There wouldn’t really be a need for a summary: any film by Sion Sono is worth it, regardless of its plot. And even if it means a change of register, from exuberance to lo-fi science fiction. Sono uses a soft black and white to tinge the story of a female android who works delivering packages to different humans scattered across the galaxy. Meanwhile, the humanoid narrates her robotic vicissitudes in an audio diary.
