MEL (Machine Engineered Love) is a company that tests compatibility for potential couples and aims to find the perfect match for you without wasting time on the wrong ones.
Arthur is a loyal client of MEL as he shares MEL’s philosophy – rational and logical. There are usually no surprises in his life, except for one day, he meets Stephanie, a lovely waitress, and falls in love with her at first sight.
They meet at MEL for their compatibility test. During a series of intercuts between them in separate test rooms, we see a glimpse of Stephanie and Arthur’s personalities and values.
The result makes not only them but also us, the audience, start to reflect on the nature of relationships. What matters the most, love or compatibility? And when these two conflict, are you still willing to start this journey?
