Harsh Realm 1999US soldier Lt. Thomas Hobbes (Scott Bairstow) is recruited to enter a virtual reality world, known as Harsh Realm, which was created for the use in military training simulations. A rogue General, Omar Santiago (Terry O’Quinn), has hijacked the program and taken control of the virtual domain for some sinister but as yet unknown purpose, and the only way to get rid of him is to assassinate him within the game. On entering it, Hobbes finds himself trapped in a world where nothing is real aside from the fact that if you die in it, you die in real life too. Santiago rules over the game space, which geographically is identical to the real world, like a mixture of Fidel Castro and Colonel Kurtz, a dictator whose iron grip on the military ensures no one can oppose him. Hobbes, whose mission is known to the General, is forced to travel through the realm, fugitive-like, all the time waiting for his chance to kill Santiago and end the game, to get back to his fiancee in the real world.
