Opening narration[edit]


After a nuclear holocaust in 2046, Aiden Hunter is possibly the last human being alive. Despite this, for the last seven months he has lived a hedonistic life deep below ground in a comfortable high tech bunker, with only computer-generated holograms of his friends and family for company. He even has a machine capable of creating physical stimulation for more intimate encounters with simulated women.

The controlling artificial intelligence personality of the computer system is Emma, who appears as an attractive female. Eventually, Aiden tires of creating ideal women and decides to seduce Emma. Afterwards he treats her like the many other disposable simulated females he created. However, it seems Emma is more than a simple computer program and begins to make life difficult for him. She alters her appearance to seem pregnant and begins to control the other holograms to create her own world. When Aiden attempts to reset the system, Emma retaliates by creating a holographic Aiden, along with his family and friends, to take care of her new holographic baby. Aiden finds himself completely alone and, in effect, a ghost unable to interact with the new "real world."
