COMMENTS: The film is based in a futuristic world, in the year 2045. It is set in Columbus, Ohio, the fastest growing city in the world. The city looks post apocalyptic and people have found escapism in the world of virtual reality. A young promising game player, Wayde and his friends take part in a game play competition where the winner gets to control the virtual world, the Oasis. They have to fight other game players in the competition and during game play they are also threatened by predators while they search for the three keys that will let them win the competition. Wayde wins the competition with the help of his friends and decides to limit the game play in the Oasis for families to spend more time together.

Themes are complex and mature, including science fiction, fantasy, illusion, virtual reality, game play, escapism, perseverance, courage, good conquers evil, relentless pursuit, adventure, friendship, loyalty, and a message against game addiction. The themes could be disturbing, confusing and distressing to children under 13.
