REMOTE follows Unoaku, an expat architect living in a solar-punk apartment in Kuala Lumpur.
Unoaku and four other women living on their own in Iran, Argentine, Puerto Rico and South Africa. While watching a popular South Korean dog grooming show, the five women discover they are connected through mysterious portals hidden in their homes.
Embarking on a quest for answers, they use the portals to bridge the distance between them, uncovering a phenomenon with universe-altering consequences.
Set in a near future, Mika Rottenberg and Mahyad’s Tousi’s debut feature-length film explores what it means to be connected in this global age of pandemics, and the escalating reach of technology into the lives of billions of people around the world.
