Plot[edit]

In year 2047 more than 75% of the population, known as the connected, spend the majority of their lives living in online virtual games (called verses). The world is dominated by few corporations and politicians are happy to keep the masses docile through online games. After 148 gamers are killed in a computer virus attack perpetrated by terrorist group Necromancers, shadow agent Nash (Mike Dopud) is hired by Synternis Corporation operative Dina (Jane Badler) to track and eliminate the attackers. Nash is a hybrid, spending half the time online and half in the real world. He is haunted by the death of his love Helena in a virus attack a few years back. Nash takes the help of a hacker Morel (Maximilien Poullein), Helena's brother, to hack security video from Interpol servers. Meanwhile Synternis covers up the attack to avoid any involvement of Interpol. Nash infiltrates a Necromancer cell by taking over online avatar of one of their members. There he learns that the goal of Necromancers is to break people out of virtual reality by any means. Hacking attempts of Morel draws the attention of Interpol, this leads to Interpol intimidating him. Nash is ambushed at his flat by Camylle (Kaya Blocksage), leader of Necromancers. She tells him that Synternis Corporation is responsible for the death of Helena, as they first developed the virus capable of killing players while online. Camylle asks Nash to help in her plan to free everyone by helping in inserting the virus through a server at Synternis headquarter. This virus will systematically shut down all the verse forcing people to confront the real world. Nash contemplates whether it is wise to force unwilling populace into freedom. The necromancers are apprehended and destroyed by Synternis. Dina severs all the ties between Synternis and Nash on account of his betrayal. She also inform him that he was misled and the virus that killed Helena was indeed launched by Necromancers. To escape his painful memories Nash becomes connected using his fortune to add features and comforts to online avatar. He reasons that since his brain can't distinguish between real and virtual, the online life is as good as real.
