More About Life Begins at Rewirement:
A man struggles with the health care system and his own feelings of guilt when he checks his 100-year-old, estranged mother into Gateway TransCare — a memory care facility that uploads elderly minds into computer data banks.
Set in the near future, LIFE BEGINS AT REWIREMENT follows Simon Ender on the day he checks his 100-year-old mother Jessica, into Gateway TransCare – a memory care facility that stores consciousness in data banks.
Simon is a middle-aged, successful businessman grappling with the difﬁcult decision of what is best for his ailing parent. After suffering a stroke a few years ago, Jessica is wheelchair bound and can only communicate through a text-to-speech synthesizer. She lives alone and is descending rapidly into dementia.
The strained relationship of a stubborn, forgetful mother and her uptight son is put to the test. LIFE BEGINS AT REWIREMENT blurs the lines between memory and oblivion, parent and child, human soul and the spirit of technology.
