The American cult writer, Philip K. Dick was responsible for some of the most iconic novels of the twentieth century which layed the foundation for movies like Blade Runner. This doc draws upon Philip K. Dick’s work as well as various cinematographic adaptations of his novels (Blade Runner, Minority Report, Total Recall, and more) in order to illustrate the extent to which K.

The film will take the viewer on a fascinating journey to discover this extraordinary writer and to observe our contemporary society with a critical eye by delving into three of K. Dick’s main obsessions: The human being and his double, A controlled society and What is reality?
