Investigative reporter Sara Lincoln is invited to write about the mysterious MindScan Inc., the company behind the Prometheus Bionetic Interface, which connects the human brain to a virtual reality super-computer. Numerous lawsuits from former customers, and in some cases their estates, push creator/founder Tom Sobel to expose the technology to the public.

While researching her story, Sara struggles with the social and moral implications of the technology and gets more than she bargained for as the lines between her ethics, the virtual world, and reality blur.
