About ‘PLATO’s REALITY MACHINE’
‘PLATO’S REALITY MACHINE‘ is an ensemble portrait of the modern relationship as it exists in the current wilds of New York City. Three men: Charles, Josie and Scott, and three women: Maggie, Kim, and Zoe, crash into each other in a tangled web of late nights, painful mornings, hurt feelings and a very ill-advised trip to the strip club. It’s a non-linear story of ex-girlfriends and brand new boyfriends, of one night stands and single men getting cats. It’s a story of the timeless quest for a real human connection, however short-lived.
A mysterious video-game adventure interweaves with reality television inspired confessionals and traditional narrative stories to offer a fresh and modern twist on the “relationship movie”. Get ready to get lost.
