Synopsis

A man is lying on the couch in a psychologist's office. He longs for escape and is troubled by his conscience. He confesses to having invented an artificial man-humanoid. He has given the robot both his looks and his own memories and emotions. He has sometimes used his invention to entertain his demanding wife Betty while he devotes himself to his hobbies. The humanoid has, however, started to get out of its inventor's control because it has fallen in love with the beautiful woman. The psychologist is sympathetic to the inventor's yearning and the man finally asks him whether he would feel the same if it was the double lying here on the sofa...
