Max Peterson (Shane West) is a tech savvy young man who receives a mysterious cell phone one day.  The phone immediately commands Max to perform certain actions that prove to be advantageous, such as refusing to board a plane that later crashes, and purchasing stocks that quickly transform him into a millionaire.

When FBI and NSA agents confront Peterson, he discovers that the phone is a byproduct of an American surveillance program named Echelon, and that it has essentially become an autonomous entity determined to infect computer systems around the world.  By now Max knows too much however, and becomes a liability to both agencies.
