What if we are living in a simulation, and the world as we know it is not real?
To tackle this mind-bending idea, director uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick
to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy, and conspiracy theory.
Leaving no stone unturned in exploring the unprovable, the film uses contemporary
cultural touchstones like The Matrix, interviews with real people shrouded in digital
avatars, and awide array of voices, expert and amateur alike. If simulation theory
is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknowable
entity, then who are we, really?
