The main character of Keiichi Matsuda’s movi is the forty-two years old Juliana Restrepo, disillusioned with her life, dominated by a technology and by media more and more invasive, so much to fill her vision with sinternet ervices as Google, video-game, jobs research services and buildup of “loyalty points” tied to her online identity and to her daily activities.
On the bus, on the road, in the shops, Juliana see continously superimposet to physical reality a series of contents of increased reality and virtual reality. But suddenly in a supermarket the “hyper reality” system starts to show flaws, showing superimposed to the physical reality contents intended for a man named Emilio, as the avatar of an attractive young girl with guns.
Alarmed Juliana calls her provider help desk which warns that her account seems under attack and suggests her to follow a blue line to the nearest service center to confirm, giving her own biometric data, her online identity.
