Kip and Will became Silicon Valley legends after the viral success of their blockbuster video game. But success has driven them apart: Will has become a suit obsessed with the bottom line, and the death of Kip's wife has turned him into a total recluse. Now they’ve been thrown back together in a high-stakes gamble to complete and ship a new multi-billion dollar game; but as Will re-enters Kip’s life, he realizes that his old friend has built a whole other world — complete with an artificial intelligence to whom Kip escapes to ease his loss.
