Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history.
Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.
- Prof. Stephen Hawkin -

Theresa, a young student in Berlin, discovers by chance that all internet entries of her ex-boyfriend, Jakob Vierer, a previously extremely popular individual with a massive social following have disappeared. He has virtually vanished.

Moreover, he seems to have also physically disappeared. No one knows his current whereabouts. As Theresa, together with an eclectic group of friends, begins to investigate what happened to Jakob the search quickly sets her onto a dangerous path and she is confronted with the question what is more important to people: digital existence or real life.

A path, that puts her in the middle of a power battle between private technology companies, governments, intelligence forces – and a seemingly out- of- control AI technology itself.
