About The Peripheral
Starring Chloe Grace Moretz as Flynne Fisher and Jack Reynor as her Marine veteran brother, who both live in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2032 alongside their dying mother.
As their mother’s health deteriorates and the medical bills add up, Flynne and Burton make extra money playing simulations (Sims).
The two siblings share Burton’s avatar, “jockeying” for high-paying customers to beat challenging game levels. When Burton is offered a chance to beta test a new Sim, it’s Flynne who ends up playing, pretending to be her brother. The Sim takes place in London, and it tasks Flynne with breaking into a corporation known as the Research Institute—to steal a valuable secret.
When the assignment goes badly wrong, Flynne realises the Sim is more real than she ever imagined.
The London she’s exploring exists in the future… the year 2099. And what Flynne has uncovered in the Research Institute has put her and her family in grave peril. There are people from the future who want to use Flynne for the information she’s stolen…and there are others who want Flynne dead.
Flynne encounters Wilf (Gary Carr) in Future London, a man who may be the key to unlocking the mystery at hand. But first, in her present, Flynne and Burton, along with his former elite military unit, must rally to save themselves from forces intent on killing them—forces sent from the future to reclaim the vital secret Flynne stole.
