In the year 2045, much of Earth’s population centres have become slum-like cities due to overpopulation, pollution, corruption, and climate change.

Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) is a teenager from Columbus, Ohio who frequents the OASIS and attempts to win “Anorak’s Game”, a game created by the recently-deceased creator of the OASIS, James Halliday (Mark Rylance), in search of its Easter Egg. The winner is to be granted full ownership of the OASIS and Halliday’s $240 billion fortune.
