Storyline

In the near future, a new law has criminals sent to a virtual reality world as their prison, built by a shadowy corporation called Zircon based in Seattle. The designer of the system, Steven Falcon, realizes the danger of it being overloaded and of hackers who try to break in and steal files only to have the prisoners try to break out via that method. When Falcon threatens to quit the operation, he becomes marked for murder by his employers who force him to enter the Matrix virtual reality/afterlife to find the source of the danger of the system crashing.

A weird tale of a guy sent into a virtual reality penal colony, where he finds his dead wife singing in a night club, fights Alti from Xena, and tries and fails miserably to be a noir matrix wanna be, without the plot, special effects, or acting. One bright note is an appearance of pre-Buffy The Vampire Slayer Julie Benz, who gets killed several times and has a love scene, and a unexplained kid by the end. So it's a lot like her character of Darla. We even get to see Julie totally topless for her love scene, but sadly they voice over exposition while she sings in the night club. I'd have prefered to hear her sing.
