年輕男子Li Wan愛情失意,經常與那失敗愛情的回憶幾度夢迴糾纏,反覆夢見沒有人的世界,夢中那貌似前度的女生用古董相機拍照,說自己是集體智能的一部分,是第廿二個派來支配地球的程式,亦為了重新感受所有而到來。一晚在網絡投石問路何以人生會如此失敗,怎知卻找到打開潘朵拉盒子的鎖匙,出現了自己在虛擬世界的複製分身,這個由互聯網產生的智能自此成為他的愛情嚮導者,教他支配虛擬世界的愛情程式,夢中那個像前度的她竟是Li Wan在程式中投射出來的。當愛情可以自由塑造或投射,或有無限的情境版本,無論有多少次重來再回味再回憶再珍重,愛情最終都落得差強人意的結局程式。每段愛情走到最後,那始終只差一點點的目的地,究竟是消失於城市空間,還是埋藏於想像一隅?虛擬世界比現實的都市愛情,到底哪個更夢幻?

Jilted lover Li Wan often struggles with memories of a lost love in his dreams, where he sees a world without people. In his dream, he sees a lookalike of his ex who claims to be the 22nd program sent to dominate Earth. This girl with an antique camera also claims to come back to re-experience the past. One night, Li Wan asks the Internet how come his life has become such a failure. Unbeknownst to him, he has opened a Pandora’s box as his virtual clone appears on the Internet as his guide to romance. It teaches him how to control the program of love, which includes his ex’s lookalike. Now he can freely mold or project his love life in an infinite number of scenarios. Yet no matter how many times he relives his love, it is ultimately disappointing. There is always something missing. Is his love disappearing in the urban landscape or hiding in his imagination? Which is dreamier, the virtual or real love story?
