Amelia 2.0

Synopsis: When his wife Amelia suffers an aneurysm that leaves her bedridden and slowly dying, police officer Carter Summerland searches for a way to revive her. He's approached by Wesley Enterprises about allowing Amelia to be the test subject for an experimental program that will place her mind in a new, artificial body - and out of desperation, Carter agrees. But is the result really Amelia Summerland? Or is it something else entirely? Set in the very near future, The Summerland Project uses current, existing technology as a launchpad for a story about where the line truly is between life and death, and to ask the question: What is is that makes us human?. It explores the motivations behind the team that creates Amelia, from genius but standoffish Dr. Ellen Beckett to the kind yet arrogant industrialist Paul Wesley, who funds the work. It explores the fallout in the scientific, legal and religious community, with opposition to the project spearheaded by the passionate Senator Williams. But mo

- Amelia, thank you for agreeing

to do this interview.

- Thank you for coming.

- Thank you.

- I'm a little nervous.

- Really? How so?

- Cameras, people watching,

kind of feeling the

pressure, you know?

- What I actually

mean is some people

may be asking how

it's possible for you

to even feel nervousness

considering what you are.

How did you feel

when you realized

that you were no longer human?

- What we're working on

is going to change the world.

- Scientists

have known for years

that the human brain is

essentially an electrical device.

- Beginning data stream in 10...

- Seven, six.

- That's where our memories

are, everything about us.

Our hopes, fears, dreams.

- Six, five, four.

- Transmitting neural

impulses from the brain

is nothing new.

This, this is the next step.

Containing those connections.

- We can't return life

that's already lost.

But, we might be

able to intercede

before the moment of death

and rescue a person's

consciousness

before it's lost forever.

If we can do that,

then that is the key

to living forever, to

saving those we love.

To saving those who

leave us too soon.

That's what we're trying to do.

- Every day we learn new ways

to conquer the limits

of the human body.

We're approaching new

worlds, new frontiers,

and new possibilities for life.

And I will tell you, we

are already looking forward

to the students,

to the pioneers,

and the breakthroughs

yet to come.

Each day we hear new

ideas, see new projects,

and we meet new heroes.

Here's to building

a better future.

Here's to building

better people.

- Dad used to say that life

was like a light switch.

You die and you're

just turned off.

I don't think he

was ever afraid.

- What do you think?

- Still not used

to it, you know?

- Just...

Tell me what you need me to do.

- Stay safe out there.

- Here's the thing, Adah,

there's no such thing as

the natural order of life.

- You're saying in your

book that transhumanism

is humanity escaping the

bounds of the human body,

but again, keep in mind

we're talking to everyone

that has the main

idea that humanity

is having flesh and

bones, being human itself

and having a physical body.

- Everything that we engineer,

everything that we do...

- for lunch there is celery.

You need to tell

that partner of yours

that he's a bad

influence on you.

Gotta keep you

lookin' good, mister.

- Mm-hm.

Maybe I can just call

in sick to work and...

You know, one of these

days I gotta tell Amelia

I need more calories

than a ham sandwich.

- Enjoy it while it lasts.

Still have things about

each other you don't know.

- That's not true, Vaughan.

- Carter, I've been

married since college.

You got five months tops, right,

and then she accidentally

leaves the bathroom door open

or forgets to flush.

Next thing you know,

seven years go by

and you got a mortgage.

She starts talkin' about kids.

You guys have talked

about that, right?

- Yeah.

I mean, not recently.

What the hell's so funny.

- Oh, it's comin'.

Oh, welcome to the club

of former honeymooners.

You better start

picking out baby names.

Until then,

enjoy this time.

- I am.

And you know what, I'm

actually looking forward

to picking out baby names.

I am.

- All units be advised,

reports of a mentally unstable

man on Lily boulevard.

Can I get a responder?

- So much for lunch.

- Are you okay, Mrs. Summerland?

- Did you forget something?

- Yeah, my tablet.

- Yeah, right.

- Sir?

- Sir, I need

you to take your hands

out of your pockets.

- It's a beautiful

day, don't ya think?
