Neo is a disaffected computer hacker seeking the answer to the question, "What is the Matrix?". His search leads him to the elusive Morpheus, who begins to enlighten Neo about the illusions of his so-called reality. In accepting the answer Morpheus provides, Neo is hurled into a futuristic world where old realities are shattered, and he must fight for his life, and the future of humanity, against a dangerous group of inhuman government agents.
