Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 20 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant Quorra, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. Meanwhile, the malevolent program CLU, who dominates the digital world, plans to invade the real world and will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.

Did You Know?
The "Grid" as Sam Flynn wipes off the terminal in Kevin Flynn's basement shows in the command line: $whoami Flynn uname -a SolarOS 4.0.1 Generic~50203-02 sun4m i386 Unknown.Unknown $login -n root This Easter-egg states that the Grid ran on the predecessor of Solaris OS known as Sun4m which ran on the SPARC architecture, same as the SPARCstation 5 during that time period. This was the system used as the base for Flynn/Encom OS (the operating system the Grid claimed to be ran on). Sun4m was also a proprietary operating system owned by Oracle Corporation.
Another easter egg is that this system runs on an "i386" chip), which refers to the 32 bit Intel 80386 CPU, which was commonly known as a "386". The 386 was released in 1985. As the original film was released in 1982 (the same year that Intel released the 80286) the producers of Tron: Legacy are inferring that Enron had access to an early prototype of the 386, which would have been on the drawing board at the time the 286 was released.

The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day...
