"video calibration - a movie" is an experimental fiction piece which tells its loose and convoluted narrative through selections from Hollywood films.

The story is told from the point of view of a mortally wounded android detective through disjointed omniscient flashbacks. His mind is filled with memories of lost love as his life forces dissipate. This film is the second in the video calibration series, following "video calibration - a love story" 47 min, 2013.
