What the Heart Wants

Set deep within an imagined future, HYPER, a new system that has achieved the ultimate goal of becoming human, introduces us to her dizzying world. We meet entities like a worker's collective of ears, fugitive lovers, a human cell, and a memory that has outlived its owners. The film is about the future of what it could mean to be 'a person', and how machines shape who – or even what – we are.
