The story of a synthetic human mind as polarizing as its creator.
A young filmmaker sets out to document a brilliant neuroscientist who has become frustrated with his field’s status quo. With time elapsing and millions of dollars on the line, In Silico explores an audacious 10-year quest to simulate the entire human brain on supercomputers. Along the way, it reveals the profound beauty of tiny mistakes and bold predictions — a controversial space where scientific process meets ego, and where the lines between objectivity and ambition blur.

In the end, this isn't about science. It's about the universals of power, greed, ego, and fame. Enjoy. — Neely Swanson
