Does Space Dream in Bits is a personal quest through cyberspace, in search for signs of humanity amongst ones and zeros, telling the story of a man, machine, life and death. Fighting her way through the jungle of connection errors, glitches, search bars and pop-up messages, the filmmaker meets three people lost in cyberspace: a man who hopes that the digital realm can help him reach immortality, a young woman, who uses it as a platform for her spiritual practice, and a young man, who believes that the only reason for existence is in meaninglessness of it. Staying safely behind the screen we are invited to think of life through data, god through numbers and to witness the endless digital questions, many of which will never be answered.
