Viktor Taransky is a washed-up director when the beautiful Nicola walks off the set of his last film, the head of the studio cancels his contract.

A hopeless Taransky is left wondering what is wrong with Hollywood when inventor Hank Aleno presents him with a bombshell: a virtual actress.

Created from computer code, Hank's invention--deemed S1M0NE--is beautiful, talented and breathtakingly real.

Soon, Taransky is editing Simone's image into his films and creating masterpieces.

He devises elaborate schemes to make Simone appear to be human, all the while masterminding her every move as she becomes an international superstar.
