Marjorie Prime

Around the year 2050, 85-year-old Marjorie (Smith) is experiencing the first symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. To bring her comfort her daughter Tess (Davis) and son-in-law Jon (Robbins) hire a service called Prime, designed to assist Alzheimer patients by creating holographic projections of deceased family members which are "fed" with the patients' memories so that they can "retell" them back in case they forget them. Marjorie has chosen a younger version of her late husband Walter (Hamm), who died fifteen years ago. This choice disturbs Tess as she does not trust the system's functionalities, so she does not talk to Walter's hologram. Marjorie tells stories of her life to Walter Prime and enjoys listening to him tell them back, usually asking him to embellish some to make them better and prettier the next time he tells them, so that the new story will become her new memory. Meanwhile, Julie (Andujar), Marjorie's caretaker, moves in with the family to watch over her and confides in Walter.
