In early 2005, David Hanson, an American robotics engineer, developed his first android human. Named Phil, it was a simulacrum of the famous sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. Within weeks Phil became famous on the Web and in the author’s fan circles. It was presented at conferences around the world. In late 2005, Phil’s head disappeared during an America West Airlines flight between Dallas and Las Vegas. Through the memories of the android and those of the author, the film offers an interpretation of Phil’s life.
