A TAMPA BAY AREA PREMIERE

“…alive with humor… and terribly haunting.” -The New Yorker

WE THE PEOPLE…DEFY OUR OWN MORTALITY

This captivating sci-fi drama explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits – if any – of what technology can replace. It’s the age of artificial intelligence and 86-year-old Marjorie is worried that her memory is fading. But when a mysterious and charming young visitor appears to help Marjorie uncover the intricacies of her past, questions emerge about the limits of technology and the possibility that memory might be a purely human invention. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance?
