Twenty years ago, an artificial intelligence known as the Master Control Program (MCP) threatened to take over an unsuspecting world. The only thing that stood between the MCP and the conquest of humanity was computer genius Kevin Flynn. Flynn was digitized into a parallel universe inside the computer, where the MCP pitted programs against each other in gladiatorial combat on the arena known as the Game Grid.
With the help of a security program known as TRON, Flynn ultimately defeated the MCP and returned to the real world.
Twenty years later, Alan Bradley, creator of the original TRON program, has finally replicated the technology needed to successfully digitize a human being into the computer. The secret lies in Ma3a, an artificial intelligence sophisticated enough to hold within its memory the complete genetic makeup of a human being, as well as the correction algorithms required to safely transfer one to and from the digital world.
Unfortunately, Alan's company is on the verge of a corporate takeover. Future Control Industries (fCon) has learned of Alan's discovery and is interested in the technology for nefarious purposes. By digitizing specially trained hackers code named DataWraiths, fCon plans to infiltrate the world's computer networks from the inside.
When Alan suddenly disappears under mysterious circumstances, his son Jet, a talented young computer programmer, is transported into the computer world in search of answers. He discovers a sinister plot spinning out of control that threatens to corrupt one reality and forever transform another.
Finding his father is paramount, but getting out alive is equally important. To do this, Jet must overcome the otherworldly adversaries encountered in this strange but fantastical world of TRON.
