“Dreams. Memories. Microchips. 10 Seconds into the future there is no light.”

"City of Dark" poster

A scientist named Plato has developed a computer capable of imaging subconscious memories and dreams. A cyber-subversive, Alice, is caught infiltrating the system. She is mistaken for an industrial spy and scanned – only to reveal compromising images of her and the scientist. Unable to explain these memories, which have never happened, Plato becomes obsessed with finding Alice. But when he does, she confronts him with his own complicity in an immoral corporate scheme.
