The movie’s plot centers around an open-world video game where Reynolds stars as Guy, a non-playable character. Once Guy learns that he only exists in a video game, he decides to join in and become the hero of his own story.

The two team up to save their virtual world with support from Buddy, a sidekick played by Lil Rel Howery.
