Based on William Gibson's 80's sc-ifi cult novel Mona Lisa Overdrive, Overdrive is Frankenstein for the digital generation. We are living in an age when our future is being determined by our technology. So what does that mean for the species ? Overdrive asks what it is to be human in the deathless world of the digital future. The voice of an Artificial Intelligence presents a fairytale near-future where sentient machines and humans share a world. Virtual permeates real and the ?meat' world of biology looks to a digital hereafter where consciousness is coded and we can live forever.

A Japanese school girl , a Hollywood Star, a Street Girl, an Assassin and an avenging Ghost - five trajectories through time and cyberspace colliding in an extraordinary tale of traded identities, lost mothers, murderous fathers and dreams of immortality.
