About the show

Jennifer Haley’s dystopian thriller about the fine line between virtual reality and the real world. More…

There is a new immersive realm for the senses online, a virtual playground where those who plug in are coaxed into acting out their darkest fantasies--with no consequences in the “real” world. Or so it seems… until a young female detective begins an investigation to determine if there is a point at which thought or intention may actually constitute a crime within--and outside of--this new frontier.
