Synopsis: David, an awkward university student, has a hard time connecting to people and making friends. While working on his latest research project, he invents a device that can record and transmit people's natural vibrations or "music" as David describes it. Shocked to find this, he uses his discovery to steal away the girl of his dreams. While ecstatic at first, David finds that she grows distant when not under the influence of his invention and uses it increasingly to control her emotions towards him. When a big money corporation threatens to take his invention away, David must decide how to save all that he loves.
