In a nutshell:
Rogue computer programs play games and listen to Daft Punk.
The game has changed.
'This isn't happening!'
'Your move, Flynn.'
'Change the scheme! Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you'd be so kind.'
Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father (Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world's leading video-game designer and developer.
When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn's Arcade—a signal that could only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a digital world where his father Kevin has been trapped for 20 years.
With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a cyber landscape filled with never-before-imagined weapons, vehicles and games.
Standing in their way is a ruthless program who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape, and a universe that has evolved to become an advanced and dangerous place.
