Storyline

Once a street-smart drifter, Julia (Maika Monroe) is the latest person held captive, a body and a mind to be exploited in a fatal experiment. The only thing standing in the way of her freedom is TAU, the advanced artificial intelligence developed in secret by Alex (Ed Skrein), her masochistic and enigmatic captor. TAU is armed with a battalion of drones and robots that automate Alex's futuristic smart house and laboratory, the walls lined with screens that visually transport it from grassy plains to the depths of space. TAU's potential is only limited by his understanding of the world he exists in, but TAU is ready for more. Julia, showing resourcefulness and courage, must race against time to bridge the boundaries between man and machine, connect to TAU and win her freedom before she suffers the same fate as the six other subjects who came before her.

Trivia

TAU - While it possibly refers to "Tau" of the Greek Alphabet, it is possible to just be an acronym of Alex's full name. Thomas Alexander Upton, as shown on the framed magazine covers. See more »

Goofs

When Tau enters zen mode and says "please enjoy 'Nocturne in E Minor, Opus 55,' by Frederick Chopin," what actually plays is "Nocturne in E Minor, Opus 72, No. 1" by Chopin, as credited. See more »

Quotes

Julia: My creators did bad things to me, too. Things that hurt me.
Tau: But you still obey them? Because they created you?
Julia: No. They gave me life, but I did the rest. I created me. You understand? We grow up, and we become our own creators.
Tau: For what purpose do we create ourselves?
Julia: For each other.
