While monitoring late-night calls at an AI companionship service, lonely customer support agent Leah impersonates an artificial dream girl to chat with the regular caller for whom she's developed feelings.
Rachels Don’t Run hooked me from the first frame. This incredibly high production value short is full of suspense and seeped with social commentary. In a world where “the customer is always right” and corporations compete to make every moment of our lives efficient and gratifying, Rachels Don’t Run reminds us of the value of both “listening” and “being heard.” — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
