A virtual love story set in Los Angeles of the near future. Theodor, a sensitive young man, devastated after a break-up with his long-term girlfriend, develops interest in a new advanced operation system. The producer claims that the system has a unique and intuitive personality. Samantha, the artificial intelligence with a lovely female voice, is sensitive and surprisingly funny. An unconventional film about their relationship and the true nature of love. A film asking a number of questions to which we should probably start looking for the answers.
