Synopsis: Following a series of unexplained deaths, two not-too-bright real world police detectives are sent to a luxurious and sentient VR resort in search of a possible killer. Their investigation quickly spins out of control when their prime suspect, an 89 year old multi-billionaire rotting away in a hyperbaric chamber in the real world dies. While his real world physical death is indisputable, the suspect seems to have transcended into a digital immortality which greatly complicates his capture.
In this storyline, two vastly different realities exist side-by-side. One is a glamorous and sentient digital construct where, for the right price, residents and guests can be whoever or whatever they want to be - The old can be young, the short can be tall, the fat can be thin, the sick healthy and gender can be altered. The other reality is a grim place called "the real world" where ordinary people wish they were somebody else, go through the motions and struggle until they die.
