Like many philosophers of old, Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) wonders about life and the meaning of reality. The daytime computer programmer assumes a second identity by night (called Neo) and hacks systems hoping to uncover some answers. Unfortunately, all he finds is more questions after he meets the beautiful Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and mysterious Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne).
