Cody (John Gallagher Jr.) carries on a virtual relationship with Virginia (BAMcinemaFest regular Kate Lyn Sheil), who’s in Berlin studying abroad for six months—or so she says. As Cody becomes convinced that Virginia is, in fact, in New York, he develops an increasingly unhealthy fixation with tracking her down. Part love story, part moody paranoid thriller in the vein of The Conversation, The Heart Machine is a tense, trenchant tale of obsession and alienation for the digital age.
