In today's world, much is accomplished through the use of computer systems which use voice recognition, those computer systems which in turn communicate to their user often through a generated voice. Theodore Twombly, who works as a writer of computer generated handwritten letters for clients, is an introverted man who is on the verge of divorce from his long time love, Catherine, a marriage with who he is hanging on for dear life. Beyond his purely platonic relationship with longtime friend, the married Amy, Theodore is having problems moving onto other satisfying female relationships, either romantically or even sexually, until he realizes that he is falling for his confidante who has become possibly his best friend, Samantha, the name that he has given to the artificial intelligent operating system that powers all his personal technological devices. As Samantha is designed to cater to Theodore's needs, she evolves to a point of falling for him as well. Beyond the fact that Samantha does not have a body, they have to come up with ways of evolving the relationship into one that is truly fulfilling in every component. Three of the many questions that may arise are if Theodore's relationship with Samantha is preventing him from having a more satisfying relationship with a female human, if they truly can be bonded in all aspects being two different beings, and if Samantha's quick evolution means that she will evolve even further to her own form of self-fulfillment.
