Die 24-jährige Mae Holland ist überglücklich. Sie hat einen Job in der angesagtesten Firma der Welt ergattert: beim „Circle“, einem Internetkonzern, der alle Kunden mit einer einzigen Internetidentität ausstattet, über die alles abgewickelt werden kann. Mit dem Wegfall der Anonymität im Netz – so das Ziel der „drei Weisen“, die den Konzern leiten – wird es keinen Schmutz mehr geben im Internet und auch keine Kriminalität. Mae stürzt sich voller Begeisterung in diese schöne neue Welt mit ihren lichtdurchfluteten Büros und High-Class-Restaurants, Gratis-Konzerten und coolen Partys. Sie wird zur Vorzeigemitarbeiterin und treibt den Wahn, alles müsse transparent sein, auf die Spitze. Doch eine Begegnung mit dem mysteriösen Kollegen Bailey ändert alles…
