Adapted from an acclaimed stage play by Jordan Harrison, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, Marjorie Prime is a futuristic contemplation on the human condition. Octogenarian widow Marjorie (Lois Smith) lives in a beach house in Long Island with her concerned daughter Tess (Geena Davis) and son-in-law Jon (Tim Robbins). Marjorie's beloved husband Walter has been dead for 15 years and the ravages of time are slowly robbing her of cherished memories. With the help of state-of-the-art holographic technology, Marjorie is able to converse with a handsome rendering of her spouse called Walter Prime (Jon Hamm), who has been programmed to learn as much about his alter-ego through Marjorie and her loved ones. The subsequent conversations between Marjorie and Walter Prime provide her with constant reminders of happier times and keep the deceased husband's name and spirit alive within the family home.
