In grappling with this life-changing experience, it was evident that technology was having a real affect on Avi’s life; his babies were conceived via a technical process, born in a high-tech neo-natal intensive care unit and kept alive inside a series of machines. In short, Avi’s children came into this world and were made viable thanks to technology. But beyond that, the way in which Avi found himself relating to his newborn children – even this was colored by a relationship to technology. And so, much bigger questions, ones difficult to even formulate, loomed large as the triplets came home. In seeking to clarify these questions, and deal with his new and difficult reality, the filmmaker engages futurists, scientists, scholars, anti-technology advocates and even Ted Kaczynski, aka the ‘Unabomber,’ to uncover a big-picture view of our ongoing relationship to technology.

    The focus on Weider's fatherly duties and modest personal insights is what provides the film with its moral grounding.

    A strain of quixotic eccentricity runs through the film's endeavor; Mr. Weider basically has more material than he can marshal. As the film goes on, its elements are overshadowed by a reliance on Mr. Kaczynski's writings, which are selectively quoted and blared on screen as if part of a PowerPoint presentation.
