Do you want to live forever? YES or NO
Polly and Owen have nailed it. Successful in their careers and wildly in love with each other, they feel ready to take on the world. But when a mysterious new technology, promising a break from the daily grind, creeps into everyone’s phones, their world is turned upside down. As the line between physical and digital rapidly dissipates, Polly and Owen are forced to question whether their definitions of reality and freedom are the same. Girl in the Machine is a disturbing but compassionate vision of our potential digital future, and what it might mean for ‘life’ as we know it.
