Set in an alternate America, this chilling adaptation of Philip K. Dick's sci-fi classic centers on Nicholas Brady (Jonathan Scarfe), a Berkeley record store clerk who takes subversive action after receiving messages from a mysterious entity named VALIS. Along with bemused pal Phil (Shea Whigham), Brady moves to Los Angeles, becomes a record executive and meets songwriter Sylvia (Alanis Morissette), but VALIS's dark motives are yet to be revealed.
