You don’t know how much someone means to you until spyware causes them to malfunction and break down. As a family mourns the loss of Yang, a secondhand “techno sapien” with an expired warranty and a remarkable capacity for near-human emotion, they discover that Yang recorded fragmented footage akin to human memory. Were these clips merely a sophisticated technology or did they signal Yang’s hidden capacity for emotion and love?

Colin Farrell delivers a compelling performance as Jake, who grapples with seeing Yang as a machine and as a family member. The director Kogonada adapts Alexander Weinstein's short story into a cinematic dreamscape that at once probes the border between the human and artificial intelligence and revels in the sensorial experience of being alive.
