It's a Small World (or The Robot Play)

Anne, a recovering drug addict, is back in contact with her childhood best friend after he abandons his robot son/coffee maker at Disney World and asks her to send it back to him. Instead, it leads to a long road trip from Orlando Florida to Canandaigua New York, where the duo meet other people and small kitchen appliances that are just as lost as they are.
