Serah is a young computer science student suffering from depression, but finds inspiration and solace by playing Swords and Stones (an online role-playing game) with her boyfriend, Robert.  When she surpasses his abilities, he tries to better himself by cheating…with a game store employee (and in-game guild member) and the misogynist hacker who twists Robert into kicking Serah out of the game and their home.  In order to beat her depression on both sides of the screen, Serah must re-connect with herself and beat her broken reality on her own terms…with a little help from a jilted game store employee.
