A group of students attempt to create a wireless neural network of collective consciousness connected through a quantum computer. They discover that motor skills can be transferred through quantum theory and freely spread their technology, which they believe is a step towards intellectual freedom. The group later discovers they are a part of a larger, more sinister experiment.[1][2]



In October 2016, Terra Mater Factual Studios, a production unit of Red Bull Media House, globally released an online escape room game Mission: Unlock Enoch based on the film.[5] In January 2017, Forbes reported that one thousand movie goers would be able to participate in a live experiment during the release of the film by wearing a cognitive headband to "enable scientists to capture the cognition state of the participants simultaneously via cloud technology and collect data in real time."[6][7]


The film was released theatrically on March 28, 2017 through Terra Mater Films and Fathom Events.[8]
