In 2045, mankind is in chaos and collapse. But the world has found its refuge in OASIS, a virtual universe based on virtual reality created by the brilliant but eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). After his death, Halliday leaves his entire fortune to the first person, whatever this one, who will find the “Easter Egg” hidden somewhere in OASIS. Hence, a fierce competition starts all over the world. Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) enters the amazing fantastic race and becomes one of the most hunted users after he first passes the initial clue.
