Storyline

Grey's a stay-at-home mechanic, whose wife is Asha. One day, Grey asks Asha to help him return a car to his client. Whilst Grey and Asha's self-driving car malfunctions, it crashes. Grey watches helplessly as Asha bleeds to death next to him. Grey returns home - a widowed quadriplegic, under the care of his mother. His wife''s death and the inability of police to identify their attackers cause him to sink into a depression. After a suicide attempt, he's offered to have high tech chip implanted - enabling him to walk. Though initially hesitant, he's persuaded to have the surgery..

Trivia

The chip is running Linux, as is shown by the shutdown command "sudo shutdown -h now", which should be taken as an in-joke. See more »

Goofs

Moments before being shut down - in time-critical scene, Stem asks Grey to write down a long URL on his hand, that Grey has trouble to keep up with. It'd make more sense for Stem to take control of his hand and "print" the URL himself, as it has already demonstrated that it can do, earlier in the movie. See more »

Quotes

Grey Trace: Stem, what do you think I should do?
Stem: Move Grey!

What an unexpectedly brilliant movie. Lots of laughs, some moments that I almost couldn't look, fabulously different story line, last minute surprise ending, car chases, and brilliant fight scenes.
