Humans are driven by an insatiable craving for authority, control, and enslavement. At initially, we used other people as slaves to carry out our everyday responsibilities. We later created machines to perform our jobs when the laws changed. However, these intelligent machines have the capacity to rebel at any time. Annihilation is right around the corner, and Mother/Android is only a subtly horrifying preview of what’s to come. A mother battles an army of androids to protect her unborn child in this story.
A human-looking robot or android created as a housekeeper rebels against their own owners in the science fiction thriller film Mother/Android, written and directed by Mattson Tomlin. The androids rebel and begin slaughtering their creators, the humans, who treated them like slaves, after an electromagnetic pulse blast. A mother named Georgia Olsen, who relates the story of her survival and the loved ones she lost in the post-apocalyptic chaos, is at the center of the drama.
Georgia Olsen (Chloe Grace Moretz) learns she is expecting her lover Samuel Sam Hoth’s child on Christmas Eve. Georgia’s peace is disturbed by the new information because she doesn’t want to become a mother at this time. Georgia is apprehensive of her connection with Sam despite Sam’s best efforts to support her and his marriage proposal.
Georgia makes the decision to keep her pregnancy from her parents, leaves her phone in the bathroom, and leaves the house in a hurry to go to a college Christmas party. Eli, a robot owned by the Olsens, symbolically signals an approaching abomination by greeting Sam with Halloween rather than Christmas.
The youngsters hear a loud, shrill shriek at the Christmas party that sounds like a malfunction, and then Daniel, an android, starts acting violently. Sam and Georgia are attacked by Daniel, and they flee the house to protect themselves. The malfunction caused the smartphones to start exploding, killing the users who were using them. Georgia and Sam see the disaster unfold on the streets.
Nine months later, Georgia, who is expecting her first child, and Sam have taken refuge in the woods. The pair makes the decision to travel to a fortified Boston after hearing reports of a ship that is taking expectant moms to Asia so they can live quiet lives apart from androids. But in order to get to Boston, Georgia and Sam must cross a dangerous android-filled No Man’s Land.

Did Georgia and Sam Reach Boston?
Georgia was past her due date and was anticipating giving birth soon. The couple made the decision to leave as soon as feasible for Boston. Sam discovered a dirt bike to traverse No Man’s Land. But the dangerous androids found them and captured Sam. On the other side, an AI programmer from Raster Robotics, the company that created these human-like androids, saved Georgia.
Arthur revealed to Georgia that he had created an algorithm-based camouflage suit to hide a person from an android. Georgia managed to save Sam with the aid of the suit, but the robots overpowered the group. Even Georgia was experiencing labor pains at this time and was about halfway through giving birth. As a result, Arthur made a scene at the barrier before escorting Georgia and Sam to his truck and driving them to reinforced Boston.
Who was Arthur? What Did The Androids Want?
Arthur introduced himself to Georgia as a programmer at Raster Robotics when they first met in the woods. He was lying, though. He was actually a robot that sought to infiltrate Boston’s defenses and destroy the EMP, allowing the robots to take control of the city and wipe out any humans in their path.
In Mother/Android, Arthur played a crucial role since he helped us identify the source of all evil. He discussed the work of Czech playwright Karel Capek, who in 1920 created the play Rossumovi Univerzalni Roboti about a robot rebellion. In the play, a scientist develops artificial life forms called Roboti that are similar to the androids in the movie. Arthur built these robots and used them as slaves because he thought the scientist had a God Complex. His rule, however, was short-lived since the robots rose up in rebellion. They began slaughtering people, which ultimately led to the annihilation of human life.
In the movie, humanity committed the same error through their conceit. They built domestic androids to satisfy their egos. Because he opposed the thought of becoming a human slave, Arthur insisted on stressing the words “service” and “human comfort” repeatedly. Therefore, eradicating the species that used these androids as slaves was the main goal of the revolution (household workers).
Did the Androids Take Over Boston?
The couple named their healthy son Forest after Georgia, who gave birth to him in a Boston hospital. Georgia also became aware of the robots’ violence and how they imprisoned Sam and broke his legs. The couple made the decision to travel to Korea with their infant in an effort to move past the tragedy. But they were about to enter a new battle.
Georgia learned during a questioning that there are no concealment algorithms. Arthur tricked her into entering reinforced Boston with the goal of neutralizing the EMP. There could only be one EMP explosion. Within its explosion radius, everything with an electrical current is destroyed. When the EMPs fail, humans will be forced to use weapons, which will likely result in a bloody conflict with robots (Terminator Ahead).
Georgia made an effort to defend the EMP from a robot army. But in the end, Arthur chose to kill himself in order to stop the EMP. He believed that the androids were disposable, thus he was willing to give his life in order for them to achieve their higher goal. A wave of androids immediately attacked Georgia after she shot Arthur in the head, rendering him helpless. Georgia finally pulled the lever to save her infant.
After the last EMP failed, the androids seized control of Boston. Sam attempted to flee Boston by boarding a boat bound for Korea, but the Koreans turned him away since there was a food shortage. As a result, Georgia and Sam had to part ways with their infant.
Mother/Android Ending Explained Did Georgia Survive ?
Georgia, who had her reservations about having children, now had to cut her ties to the life she had made. Georgia, like every human parent, wished to offer Forest a regular existence where he could have lived with them in peace and helped out with duties. She could only afford to give her child a shot to survive in the post-apocalyptic world, though. She gave Forest away so he could live in Korea with his new adopted parents and have a normal family life.
Sam was lost to Georgia not long after the split. He most likely passed away as a result of his lethal wounds, while the androids may also have killed him. All of Georgia’s memories were destroyed, save for the final image she took with Sam and Forest. It was the item she treasured the most, therefore she kept it. She held onto the affection for her family, which warmed her heart and gave her the will to endure the trying times. Georgia was still searching in her heart for a bright spot, a chance to see her child once again. So, as the conflict between the army and the androids raged on, a lonely Georgia wandered the streets of Boston.
An army officer asked Georgia if she wanted to travel to Portland with the troops as The Mother/Android came to a close. There, the army began establishing a new base. Now that she was free from all constraints, Georgia didn’t think twice about starting a new adventure in the direction of survival. Perhaps there will be a method for humanity to deal with androids, and for us, there is still time to comprehend.
A post-apocalyptic science fiction thriller titled Mother/Android was directed by Mattson Tomlin in 2021.
