Reality-challenged gaming geek Steve Smolinski has 1 hour to save the world. If only he didn't have to do it from his cubicle at work. Steve's boss doesn't understand that he really can't work when he has an entire kingdom to save from evil elves. His girlfriend is upset that he forgot their two-year anniversary. His mother is angry because he forgot to apply for readmission to MIT. None of them get it - if he doesn't retrieve the sacred relic, civilization could come crashing down. And if he saves the relic, he might just save himself in the process.
