A burned-out college professor teams up with a feisty reporter to find the connection between his student’s death, a mysterious software company and a corrupt politician vying for the presidency.
Synopsis/Details: 

In the dead of night, a man plummets to his death from the top of the towering TRINISYS BUILDING. Across town, a college professor named JACK SOLOMON loses another battle to the demons of booze and writer's block. A one-time author with a knack for throwing darts, he is a man struggling to come to terms with the reality of his own self-worth. This frustration leads to a public altercation with one of his students, DANNY MILLER. When Miller winds up dead the next morning, Jack's world flies apart. He finds himself being led away in handcuffs by a dispassionate detective named CASTILLANOS, accused of cold-blooded murder.

As Castillanos lets Jack linger in a holding cell, enormous preparations are underway to herald Trinisys's newest techno-toy, VIRTUAL PLANET. A virtual-reality headset used to experience the internet like never before, it threatens to take the country by storm. Backed by SENATOR RUSSELLS, a political powerhouse with eyes on the presidency, the company's fanatical promotion of the product is watched with keen interest by SARAH HARPER. A reporter with beauty as well as brains, Sarah uncovers an unlikely connection between Jack and the man who fell to his death in the opening. It was the man's son whom Jack is accused of killing.

Jack and Sarah join forces to uncover the horrible truth behind Virtual Planet and the Senator's twisted intentions. As Castillanos, the Senator and unexpected events conspire against him, Jack will be forced to confront his darkest fears and come face to face with just who he really is, as the collective consciousness of the nation hangs dangerously in the balance.
