The near future: eXistenZ is the ultimate game, brainchild of the hip, hyper and sexually alluring Allegro Geller (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Once downloaded via a bioport implanted into the players' spine, eXistenZ promises an experience that will shatter forever the line between fantasy and reality. At its launch armed fanatics burst in, determined to destroy the game and its creator. Forced to run for her life, Allegra's sole ally is a young security guard (Jude Law). Together they seek refuge in the only place the gaming goddess feels safe - the world where existence ends and eXistenZ begins.
