“North Conglomerate”, in a near future, three days before Christmas. A programmer Jimi, who has just been left by his girlfriend, is completing a new computer game called “Nirvana” on the behalf of a multinational corporation. His computer gets infected by a virus: the only consequence being that the character of the videogame, Solo, suddenly becomes conscious of his virtual nature and pleads with Jimi to delete him before his fictional existence can be replicated in millions of copies and sold all over the world. In order to help him, and to find his girlfriend, Jimi ventures out into the degraded periphery of the city.
