What It’s About: Tron: Legacy takes place 20 years after the first film. In the years following his appointment as CEO of ENCOM, Kevin Flynn devotes his time to developing a virtual world known as The Grid, but ends up missing. His son Sam is unexpectedly transported to The Grid, gets rescued by a vigilante, and reunites with his father.

Why Watch it Today?: Today is the 256th day of the year, also known as Programmer’s Day. The Grid is both a programmer’s dream and nightmare – a completely habitable world that has grown out of the creator’s control.
