Loading Love


The programmer Kira and the synth composer Henrik live in a vaning relationship. Henrik catches Kira seemingly having virtual sex, although she claims she's only working. Henrik breaks into the VR program, and indeed meets Kira's lover: a virtual clone of Henrik himself! And this VR-Henrik surpasses Henrik on all levels. But when Henrik tries to come between Kira and VR-Henrik, he falls in love with his own clone. All relations fall apart. In the end Kira and Henrik reunite in mutual care for VR-Henrik: they give him a copy of himself to have as a lover.
