Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
An avid computer gamer who can't grasp what it means to live in the real world finds his plans of seeking vengeance on his true-life tormentors complicated by the appearance of a beautiful girl in first-time feature filmmaker Nic Balthazar's topical psychological thriller. Ben (Greg Timmermans) is a technical school student who is far more comfortable slaying adversaries in the online world of Archlord than attempting to find his footing in reality. Tormented by his classmates and misunderstood by everyone he knows, Ben drifts through every day just waiting for the moment he can log on and lose himself in the game. One day, fed up with the ridicule of his merciless classmates, Ben devises a plan that will show everyone what he is truly made of. But when Ben meets beautiful Archlord gamer Scarlite online and the pair steadily begin to develop an intimate relationship in real life as well, the vengeful gamer suddenly finds himself at an crucial crossroads in life.
