Scene One: Blair, a former hair salon owner, is in prison for a computer misuse crime she is not sure she committed. Anna, her prison guard, shows her no sympathy and puts her in solitary confinement.
Scene Two: Blair, overcome with emotion in solitary confinement, hallucinates. Her hallucination combines the prison and computers, a recipe for Blair’s worst nightmare. Blair begins to understand how she may have accidentally committed the hacking crime.
Scene Three: Blair meets with her public defender, Cole, to whom she attempts to explain her side of the story. Unfortunately, Cole’s level-headedness prohibits him from fully understanding Blair’s point of view, and he leaves with little hope in his client.
Scene Four: An overwhelmed Blair hallucinates yet again. This time, her hallucination takes place at her hair salon but on another planet. The computers explode and repeat a strange message to her, allowing Blair to get closer to finding her alibi.
Scene Five: Cole decides to visit the scene of the crime: the hair salon. There, it seems that Blair’s hallucination becomes a reality. Cole begins to think that Blair might not be crazy after all…
Scene Six: Blair and Cole meet again at prison. Blair explains what she learned from hallucinations, while Cole builds a defense for her.
Scene Seven: Anna receives a phone call and is told to free Blair. Blair, in disbelief, must begin to rebuild her life.
