description

Portions of this audiobook contain mature language. Listener discretion is advised.

The My Fair Lady story gets a thoroughly modern, thoroughly invigorating update in this unsparing (and hilarious) look at America's capitalist tech culture. Eli is a tough young woman who makes paper flowers on Venice Beach, where she lives in a homeless tent camp. A chance encounter with a smug tech CEO, Hig, sparks an intriguing quid pro quo: she brings him an image-burnishing entrepreneurial offer, and he, in turn, hires her to present GAL - his new artificial intelligence service - at an upcoming conference. The clash of cultures results in a surprisingly insightful exploration of the shady side of AI, sexism in the tech world, economic disparity, and the human cost of relentless progress.

Directed by Rachel Chavkin.
