The film follows Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), who joins a worldwide contest to find an actual Easter egg hidden in the OASIS by its creator, so that after his death a worthy person would take control of this expansive virtual world. But of course, there’s a nefarious organization ready to swoop in and find it themselves so they can monetize it all and keep it only for wealthy customers. Wade then teams up with other “gunters” to find the Easter egg — for freedom!
