This leads him to discover his odd and eccentric neighbors; an artificially intelligent robot-head, named Adam; a virtual-reality sex game; and a possible corporate conspiracy.

Have you ever left the theater with more questions than when you came in? Check this one out. One point O is a refreshing alternative to the Hollywood formula ..... beautifully shot and well directed, with a cast and dialog that is right on. The intrigue never lets up. The film was the subject of many Interpretations and discussions long after leaving the theater. One Point O is an all-too-realistic near-future portrayal of individuals becoming isolated and paranoid - eventually targeted by the ultimate corporate marketing ploy. This is truly a unique script! This was my favorite at Sundance this year.
