Neil Grimsley is the kind of guy that could never seem to get anything going in his life. The best job he could get is as a gas station attendant, but it is rarely enough to pay the bills. Instead of worrying about anything, Neil just keeps on playing video games and becomes infatuated with the Legend Of Zelda. When Neil gets an eviction notice from his landlord, he also finds out that his girlfriend is leaving him to be with his brother. With his life collapsing around him, Neil decides to take one last chance at beating that video game. While he is playing the game, Neil finds a pond and decides to drown his character in the pond to simulate drowning himself. When his character disappears into the digital water, Neil passes out and wakes up inside the video game. Now he needs to rely on help from two extremely unpleasant old men to rescue the princess from the evil Lord Gannon. For the first time, Neil feels like he has a purpose. But it is the kind of purpose that can get a guy killed, for real.
