Tagline

Joe, a programmer and obsessive self-quantifier, risks losing his marriage when he models the personality for a digital voice on his wife, Emily.

Synopsis

Joe is a programmer who is obsessed with data. His mastery of data usually serves him well at work where he designs the personalities for IVRs—the digital customer service voices that have replaced call centers around the world. Under pressure to design a voice that conveys empathy, Joe convinces his wife Emily, the most empathetic person he knows, to be the template for his newest voice, decoding and analyzing her natural behavior. As Emily grows and changes as a person, Joe must decide if he prefers the predictable, digital version of his wife, or if he can embrace her and his own unpredictable human nature.
