GREAT STORIES ARE NOT MADE IN REALITY. THEY ARE PUT THERE.
With the newfound grasp of our own evolution in one hand, and our deep-rooted legacy of knowledge held in the other, we are all presented with moments of choice. An unrelenting wave of points in time in which we are tasked to find meaning, understanding, and hope in a world that promises us absolutely nothing… Neo is driven by these moments.
The film showcases the inspiring realities and misconceptions alike today in the advancing realms of science, medicine and technologies of our self-driven evolution. Told through the eyes of those guiding our futures in longevity, bionics, genetics, intelligence research and more, Neo creates a shared collective of world-spanning POVs exploring their greatest discoveries, and what those discoveries may mean looking ahead. Guided by inherent questions in what we are, questions we all share—of our biology, lineage and a fear-laden wonder of the unknown, Neo shows where we are now, and discusses what we still have yet to learn about ourselves. Without bias, how far our grasp has truly come.
