In the 20th century the world has finally supplied humanity with the machine for the ultimate answers. And so, burdened with the eternal questions of meaning, life and existence the filmmaker departs on a trip through the world wide web. Fighting her way through the jungle of connection errors, glitches, search bars and pop-up messages, she meets three people lost in cyberspace: a man who hopes that the digital realm can help him reach immortality, a young woman, who uses it as a platform for her spiritual practice, and a young man, who believes that the only reason for existence is in the meaninglessness of it.
