After receiving mysterious empty packages inside his apartment, a young computer-programmer (named Simon) begins a personal investigation into their origins. This leads him to discover his odd and eccentric neighbors; an artificially intelligent robot-head, named Adam; a virtual-reality sex game; and a possible corporate conspiracy.

During Simon's programming, code quickly flashes. The scrolling code is a Perl script that virus scans HTTP/FTP downloads request on a UNIX server after passing through the Squid proxy server. This is a real project named "Viralator". See more »

Caught this at Sundance and HIGHLY recommend. Think you got it all under control? Think you know what you want and why? Think again. Who said film can't be fun AND have a point? Great idea. Looks amazing. And killer soundtrack. This thing stayed with me for days. Yeah, we've seen computers and programmers in sci-fi before. This is closer to home than you think if you know anything about nanotechnology or the machinations corporate America. But then, once, no one believed in the internet either. I loved this film. Easily one of my festival faves. Lance Henriksen rocked.
