The film is based on five stories of people with implants in their heads. Against the background of the growing popularity of the topic of "chipping" and people's fears of becoming controlled by artificial intelligence, the authors of the film find five dramatic stories where "chip in the head" is a vital necessity. With the help of implants, doctors restore hearing, remove tremor, stop seizures of epilepsy and treat dystonia. What are the scientific discoveries of recent decades leading to? Is it possible to control people with the help of such technologies and what neuroethical questions arise in connection with their use? World-class scientists discus these topics in the film. Among other things, the film solves an important problem destigmatization of cyborg people and ridding society of technophobia.
