Director Iara Lee explores the alternate realities being created by technological advances in this fascinating, alarming documentary. Virtual reality, cyberspace, artificial environments and intelligence, and mind and body altering are all examined through computer animation, live action and interviews.

Some of the imagery seems random, but the film raises profound philosophical and ethical questions.
