The pilot for a new game show, named 'Brainbox', is picked up by the ETL TV Network. The purpose of the game is for contestants to pit their wits against a super computer by having a headset, which is wired up to the computer, placed on the contestant's head. For the first year, all goes well, until a malfunction in the machine's circuits cause it to develop the personality of an intelligent, but disturbed young woman named Cynthia Thomas. Her mind has been altered and her mental state begins to improve. Unfortunately, the computer starts to become increasingly mentally unstable. Suddenly, the behaviour of those who have worn the headset becomes violent and psychotic. The computer starts to take over the entire studio and fatal incidents start to occur. Mentally drawn back to the ETL TV studios, Cynthia joins forces with a group of people, comprising of a few members of the audience, two camera operators, a Production Assistant and another contestant, to shut 'Brainbox' down permanently.
