Focused on Simulation Theory, the belief that all of reality, including the Earth and universe, could in fact be an artificial simulation or computer simulation, Ascher uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy and conspiracy theory. The film also uses contemporary cultural touchstones like The Matrix, interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars and a wide array of voices, expert and amateur alike. If simulation theory is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknowable entity, then who are we, really? A Glitch in the Matrix attempts to find out.
