Filmmakers Daniel Lazo and Eran May-raz tell a story in the not-so-distant future, where people use retinal implants and apps to assist — and even control and augment — their reality.
Patrick is an engineer at Sight System, a company that develops augmented reality software. His life revolves around gaming and gaining achievements in his everyday life.
One day, he goes on a blind date and meets Daphne. The conversation starts out awkward, so he loads up “Wingman.” The app uses facial recognition and body language detection to analyze Daphne’s signs and gives Patrick suggestions on how to react and reply for the ‘perfect’ date.
Daphne begins to feel a connection and Patrick invites her back to his place for a nightcap. But once they’re alone, she notices the Wingman achievement on his wall and figures out he manipulated her.
She starts to leave in disgust. But then, Patrick hacks into her Sight and tries again.
Boy meets girl at 2:42. Then, he charms her at 4:01 before she realizes the truth at 6:04…
