Synopsis:

Watch The Congress online and enjoy a film centered around an actress who has gained notoriety for her fickleness and unreliability. Robin is her name and as a consequence of her behavior, film roles have been hard to come by of late. At the same she is the mother to an ailing son who is slowly losing his hearing and sight. Robin however is able to delay the worst from happening to her son with the help of Dr. barker.

As for her career, Robin is talked into selling her digital image’s rights to a studio named Miramount. In return she will get a tidy amount of money but on condition that she stays away from acting for the duration of the contract. The studio will develop films in which she will be starring in her digital self.

After two decades and with the expiry of her contract due, Robin is invited by her studio to attend a congress where she will speak on the future. She will also be able to renew her contract at the congress being held in city of Abrahama. In the twenty years that Robin has been out of acting, the popularity of her digital self has shot through the roof.
