Tergo – A Robot’s Story

Tergo cleans. He cleans up after you and me. He picks up the mess we discard but yet remains invisible to all around him. Tergo’s a lost soul in the London urban machine. He’s ready to leave the life he leads behind.

Tergo is our fifth short film and our first to have an entirely CG lead character. A labour of love and devotion by director and Pallas Pictures founder Charles Willcocks, it is the existential tale of a cleaning robot lost amongst the everyday drain of work in London. In a city of millions of strangers all living digital relationships it’s a modern day fable for anybody who might be lonely and caught
up in the rat race of life.

Sometimes to work out what is beautiful about life can only be solved by someone who exists to work.
