In 2033, humans can "upload" themselves into a virtual afterlife of their choosing. When computer programmer Nathan Brown dies prematurely, he is uploaded to the very expensive Lakeview, but then finds himself under the thumb of his possessive, still-living girlfriend Ingrid. As Nathan adjusts to the pros and cons of digital heaven, he bonds with Nora, his living customer service rep.

One night while on his way home from picking up groceries, Nathan Brown's self-driving car malfunctions and crashes, leaving him mortally wounded. While in the hospital with his vitals rapidly dropping, his wealthy girlfriend Ingrid Kannerman suggests his consciousness be uploaded so that they can still be together. Nathan hastily agrees and goes through the uploading process. At first everything seems fine and Nathan is happy with his new afterlife, until he realizes the many restrictions involved. Nathan is ready to end it all by jumping into a torrent stream and committing "virtucide" until stopped by Nora Antony, his human handler who helps him cope with this new life. As she leaves her desk at the end of her shift, a file folder containing a corrupt memory file of Nathan's remotely opens and certain files are deleted.

He tasks Nathan with meeting five new Uploads and learning more about them. In the real world, Nora is working to get an employee discount so she can have her dying father uploaded when he dies. Nora's boss refuses to sign the discount paperwork unless Nora gets a 4.8 star customer service rating by the end of her shift. Nathan meets David Choak, his wealthy neighbor, who suggests that Nathan might have been murdered for his work on a free alternative to Lake View which would have threatened a multi-billion dollar industry. Nathan's cousin Fran is investigating his accident, and finds his car was tampered with because it is unable to give proper information about the crash.

The process works for a few moments until Rupert's nose starts bleeding and he expresses discomfort before his head explodes. Nathan attends his funeral with Luke, a fellow Upload, and Mildred who is Ingrid's grandmother and also resides in Lakeview. Nora attends his funeral in New York and meets three former girlfriends from his college days, who inquire about her connection to him. Fran questions Ingrid about the accident, not believing Nathan died prematurely and Nathan finds out there wasn't much money given to his surviving family from his unfinished software deal. He's also disheartened by Ingrid's speech as instead of praising his life she praises Rupert's, and his best friends leave during the funeral ceremony.

During a Vogue interview, there's tension between Nathan and Ingrid stemming from Nathan's belief that Ingrid no longer loves him as she refuses to use a VR suit to have sex with him. Nathan and Nora's friendship becomes closer, with Nathan feeling he can relate to her more than Ingrid. Ingrid unexpectedly shows up at Nathan's room and prepares to have sex with him, only to discover he can't get an erection.

Nathan feels that he doesn't have much of his own life, since it's all controlled by Ingrid's decisions. He also reveals Fran's information that he wasn't actually dying before being uploaded. When Nora has to leave Dylan to see her father in the hospital, Nathan offers to watch him. Luke convinces him to visit the Grey Market, a virtual equivalent of a black market, in order to buy hacks to enter a virtual party with living people. While there, Nathan buys a hack into his former business partner Jamie's phone while Dylan absconds to get an illegal avatar upgrade so he can appear as an older person. Upon returning to Lakeview, Dylan discovers his upgrade gave him the body of a young woman which Nora then reprograms to his former body.

During their date, Nora finds out some interesting things about Byron, including that he likes to inspire children to always try and do their best, regardless of the situation. During dinner with her family with Nevaeh present, Ingrid dislikes the way they treat both Nevaeh and Nathan because they come from humble means, eventually kicking everyone out.

Nathan finds out that Jamie has been avoiding his calls because he felt ashamed for sleeping with Ingrid; he forgives Jamie and gets him to loan him enough money so he can remain as a "2 Gig", the lowest class of residents (who only have 2 gigabyte of data volume each month). Nathan pressures Ingrid about what she knows about his death but she remains mum. Later, she confronts her father and tells him that she programmed Nathan's car to prioritize his life over others, allowing him to survive the crash long enough to upload. After learning from IT that Uploads who are asleep during the upgrade will have their memories restored, Nora convinces Nathan to stay awake in order to find out the truth, even if he might forget anything that has happened since his upload. Nora gives Nathan a program she stole from an IT guy which allows him to see and manipulate Lakeview's code on the fly.

Nathan later met Ingrid's father in private and gave him a copy of the software without Jamie's knowledge to get more money and support his family. Nora was able to bypass Nathan's upgrade and it appears he has forgotten ever knowing her, much to her dismay. Nathan later confides in Luke that he remembers everything but felt he could not face her, knowing he was the bad guy. Nathan moves to the 2 Gig room and calls Nora to confess to her. While talking, the assailant who tried to destroy Nathan's hard drive breaks into her apartment and tries to kill her, prompting her to flee. Using the program he got from Nora, Nathan manages to help Nora escape. He traps the attacker in an elevator and uses it to kill him. Nora speaks to her father about what Nathan and she have found, and he suggests that she hide off the grid until they can figure out who is responsible for Nathan's death. Nora finally admits her feelings for Nathan, but he can't respond since his data has been used up. Nora heads away with Byron as Ingrid comes to visit Nathan in his room to tell him that she's uploaded herself so they can finally be together forever. He gets so upset that his one word response causes him to use up the extra 1GB of data she gave him, prompting Ingrid to call for tech support as the last light in the room flickers out.
