Somewhere in the future, there is a computer project called Simulacron which can simulate a full-featured reality. The simulation is an artificially constructed world, made up of "identity units" with human thoughts, emotions and behaviors, created in order to predict the real-world needs of the future. When suddenly project leader Henry Vollmer commits suicide, he is replaced by scientist Fred Stiller. As time passes, Stiller experiences odd phenomena and he becomes increasingly paranoid as he tries to uncover the reason behind his coworker's death. At the same time, he is unnerved by the sudden disappearance of a good friend who everyone but him seems to have immediately forgotten.
