"There is a place, a black mountain that reaches to the sky - that covers up the stars. You must find it. That is where all your answers are." She brought that message to Paul Jonas in a dream.

Yet her cryptic messages were his only hope to survive the incredibly complex virtual reality network known as Otherland.
