Marjorie Prime

The movie, set sometime in the near future, tells the story of Marjorie, an aging widow struggling with dementia. In this future world, people are able to purchase “primes,” which are computer programs that create an interactive, lifelike hologram of anybody the user chooses. Marjorie chooses her prime to take on the persona of a younger version of her late husband, Walter, who died 15 years earlier. The more the user interacts with the prime and talks about its human counterpart, the more humanlike the prime becomes.
