The great science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke once wrote, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." For Mark Netter, director of new techno-terror Nightmare Code, we're in an age of technological sorcery. "We knew how the pulley works. But you have no idea how your phone works."
Brett Desmond (Andrew J. West), a genius programmer with a troubled past is called in to finish a top secret behavior recognition program, R.O.P.E.R., after the previous Lead Programmer went insane. But the deeper Brett delves into the code, the more his own behavior begins to change… in increasingly terrifying ways.
