From director Leigh Whannell (SAW). GREY TRACE, a technophobe in a utopian near-future when computers control nearly everything – from cars to crime-surveillance – is paralyzed in a freak mugging that leaves his wife dead. But when a billionaire technologist offers him an experimental paralysis cure – an implanted computer chip called STEM – Grey finds that the chip has a voice and a mind of its own. Together Grey and STEM embark on a mission to avenge his wife’s death.
Fifteen years ago, Mel and Jen discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical, they formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now, in their late-Thirties, business is booming. They’re best friends who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. When they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship unravels.
