KillWare III: The Accidental Prisoner. Bob has a son, Scott, whom he never saw growing up because his wife left him for Europe.
My wife dead? Bob sat up, glanced over at Mo.
Bob: She...she left me for Europe.
Mo: Better than being left for another man. How can you compete with a whole continent?
Bob: I was young then. Long time ago. Before PESD. Before Harry's brain.

KillWare III, future present sci-fi where we live and where we die. There's a growing tension between life-extensionism and assisted dying, between longevity, cryogenics, nanotech implants and Transhumanism on the one hand, and dying well and the existential reality of human mortality on the other. It's not just the what, the facts of the matter about this dilemma of the human condition: human vs. biomechanics. (Are we just our memories which might one day be uploaded into something "better" than meat-based reality, or are we that which has memories?) It's also the who, the social-ethical philosophy involved in the future — and present — that classic human drama: who gets to live, who gets to die.
"the old saying still goes, 'if you can hack into their system, they can hack back into yours'. in the old days they got into your files, stole your 'stuff'; now they get into 'you', steal your soul." -- Linuxus Xianicus
