The once promising actress Robin Wright is struggling to find work when Miramax Studios presents an intriguing proposal: They want to create a digital version of Wright and turn her into a star. The real Robin Wright has to promise not to act in any more movies. Sceptical to the idea, she eventually agrees, and the world as we know it will change forever. Inventive and captivating, THE CONGRESS presents a dystopian future, where the lines between reality and fiction are increasingly difficult to define.
