More About „Implant“:
After 5 years of marriage, Emily’s life feels dull. Her husband George is usually busy at work: his company is fast-growing, developing apps for this new brain-computer interface called Implant. Almost everyone has Implant: a new technology embedded in people’s brains that are basically a far more advanced version of today’s smartphone.
Fortunately, on lonely weekends, Emily has her best friend Betty to spend time with her. Betty sympathizes with Emily’s loneliness.
One day, Emily accidentally sees someone who looks like George through a hotel room window, she is anxious: as a traditional Chinese woman, she doesn’t want to confront George, as it might risk their marriage, but she desperately wants to find out if George is cheating. She has one way to do so, begging Betty, who is an Implant specialist, to lend her a gadget that can steal George’s memory via his Implant.
George’s memory shows he was not cheating. He was just working hard. But he discovers Betty and Emily’s shady plan. Feeling betrayed, he divorces Emily.
In the end, it turns out George and Betty colluded the whole thing, in order to get rid of Emily, who valued marriage so much that she wouldn’t get a divorce. It is Betty’s superiority in new technology that enables her to trick Emily. George, being happy about the result, finds the horrifying truth that his destiny is now in Betty’s grip forever.
