Based on the story by J. G. Ballard. London, 1975. A slick apartment tower rises above the Thames, the beginnings of what will soon become the world's biggest financial hub.

Its newest resident is Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) an ambitious young doctor utterly seduced by the lifestyle and cutting-edge technology the high-rise has to offer. Laing meets Wilder (Luke Evans), a charismatic provocateur who introduces him to the seedy underbelly of the high-rise. The cracks in this apparently flawless society grow rapidly, and Laing is shocked at the depravity he sees.
