Carebot Alice leaves the laboratory to visit Mrs. Remkes, Mrs. Schellekens-Blanke and Mrs. van Wittmarschen, each in their own house. The three women are getting on in age, and are therefore exceptionally suited for the services of Alice, who has been developed by SELEMCA. This is a research group which, with the help of community nurses and family, tries to discover how the sociobot Alice should talk and react to stem the effects of loneliness on older women. The outcome of the experiment is surprising for all involved.
