LOVE+ is a one-woman two-hander. It’s about loving, being loved, being human, and whether those things are intertwined.

What happens to romance when there's a machine who cooks for you, cleans for you, never forgets your birthday or how you like your tea, tells you you're beautiful, holds you when you're crying, and still makes you cum?

It’s not about whether or not we can love machines, because we all already do. It’s about what it’ll be like when they love us back.
