The movie starts with Frank (Justin Long) struggling with his mundane life as a corporate lawyer, where he feels as though he is spending his life only working for his boss, his clients, and his wife. One day, while at a party, he is introduced to a new and mysterious drug by his friend, Theresa (Sheila Vand). The drug, known as "The Wave," promises to give the user an intense and unparalleled experience of reality.

After he ingests the drug, Frank's world turns upside down.
