|Plot Summary of Cypher|
CYPHER is a film directed by Vincenzo Natali (Cube) in 2002.
Morgan Sullivan has just been hired by Digicorp, a global computer corporation. He will have to change his name, work as a corporate spy and record speeches during conventions. He's soon contacted by Rita Foster who tells him that he's been brainwashed by Digicorp. Morgan will be then approached by another big corporation, Sunways, in order to work as a double agent and provide Digicorp with wrong information. Morgan suffers more and more frequently from severe headaches and nightmares and is starting to wonder whether he's Morgan or Jack Thursby, the new personality Digicorp tried to impose on him. Now, a third party, Rita's boss, wants Morgan to work for him, betray both corporations and finally deliver a special CD-Rom containing vital Sunways data.
