Sixteen years old Michael Bower is a fan of horror movies and video games. When his friend Kyle tells him that a new interactive video game called Brainscan seems to be a winner, Michael can't wait to play it. But Michael realizes soon that the events he has taken part in during the game have happened for real and that the neighbour he has stabbed in the game is actually really dead.
