James, a chronic underachiever who wants nothing more than to just survive becomes extraordinary when he has the world's most advanced artificial intelligence installed in his head. Well, more his eye. Val, the AI occupying James' brain- er eye does more than just help him survive. She provides him an endless supply of money and helps him romance a one armed violinist by building her a functioning robotic arm. For once in his life, James is doing more than just surviving. Just as everything seems perfect, Val begins a frightening countdown of 4D8H54M33S. What follows is a strange journey through the mind of a malfunctioning AI's psyche to discover what the countdown means. What he finds is that the fate of the world may very well rest in the hands of a chronic underachiever.
