Milo (RYAN PHILLIPPE) is an idealistic young computer genius with an artist girlfriend (CLAIRE FORLANI) and a golden future. He’s about to launch a start-up company with his friend Teddy, when he’s recruited by NURV, a multi-billion dollar corporation, run by his professional hero, Gary Winston (TIM ROBBINS).
Winston takes a personal interest in Milo. He needs his brilliance to stay ahead of the field in the race for convergence. There is no second place. For Milo it’s a dream come true, a chance to become a legend in his own right. It’s hard to disappoint Teddy, but their offer is too good to refuse.
With a talented new colleague (RACHAEL LEIGH COOK), Milo is soon caught up in the exciting challenge of realizing Winston’s vision. Winston is an inspired mentor and no problem remains unsolved for long, but new developments are brought to Milo with such speed and frequency, he begins to doubt their source.
Tragedy strikes and Milo’s doubts become suspicions. It looks as if the company will stop at nothing to win. He investigates and the consequences become more and more unnerving, until there is no one left to trust and this twenty-first century David stands alone against Goliath.
