“Smart, funny and wonderfully filmed, this movie about the jaded marketeer of virtual reality glasses is the movie Steve Jobs should have been.” — The Guardian
The setting is New York, 5 minutes in the future. David (writer / director Benjamin Dickinson) is an overworked, tech-addled advertising executive developing a high-profile marketing campaign for a new generation of “Augmented Reality” glasses. Feeling stuck in his relationship with yoga teacher Juliette (Zora Zehetner), he envies the charmed life of his best friend, fashion photographer Wim (Dan Gill) with his sexy girlfriend Sophie (Alexia Rasmussen) – and so he uses the glasses to develop a life-like avatar of her. Unwittingly, fantasy and reality begin to blur. As passions escalate and things get increasingly out of hand, David is forced to deal with an impending collision of his public, private and imaginary lives.
