Here we have a 16 minute short film, called Moriya, where a beautiful life sized mechanical doll becomes the surprising object of a shy, mechanically inclined, fifteen year old boy’s emotional and sexual awakening.. It is an adaptation based on the short story of the same name by New Orleans author Dean Paschal.

You can read the story in Best American Short Stories 2003. In addition, I’ve found the story published on the web here (link broken).

Full credits for the stark, somewhat haunting and spellbinding film are listed at the end. Sit back and enjoy.
