In a fully automated society, a smart assistant who helped build the current regime decides to join a resistance group and start a revolution. Will she succeed? What was she waiting for this whole time? And is she even human anymore?

The film was created using public domain archive footage and multiple algorithmic processes, including deep learning, generative music programming, and editing with Python. The reproduced story was inspired by Kurt Vonnegut's novel Player Piano.
