For almost a century, Hollywood has been warning of a future during which human beings become enslaved by the machines they have created. Has the time come to take the seemingly outlandish imagination of science fiction seriously? Drawing disturbing conclusions about our possible mechanical domination, this documentary investigates the parallels between movie fantasy and science reality. Over the years innovations in artificial intelligence and biotechnology have made it harder to distinguish man from man-made. Originally conceived as an aid to humanity, robots could be ready to suppress the masses. "I'm an optimist - we have a 51 percent chance of survival," sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke wryly observes. It's time to listen up: life as we know it today was last generation's science fiction.
