In this science fiction thriller, a young coder wins a contest to spend a week being mentored by a famous tech genius. At the genius' high-tech home, the young man finds that he's being used to test out a new artificially intelligent robot's abilities to masquerade as a human. Sofware developer Caleb wins a contest that allows him to spend a week at the luxurious home of his company's CEO, Nathan Bateman. The idea of the contest is that Caleb will gain insights into his work by spending time with the genius founder of the giant search engine company.

At the remote estate, Caleb finds that Bateman has created an artificially intelligent android in the form of a beautiful human woman. Bateman's plan is to have Caleb interact with the android, Ava. The goal is to see if the artificial intelligence can fool Caleb into forgetting she's a machine.
