Together with deal-closer Robert Jennings (Jeffrey Donovan), Elias finds the necessary funding to launch Digital Dreams, but just as quickly as their first million is made, good intention is replaced by the intoxication of success and fame, fortune, fast cars and faster women. Caught in a spiral of deceit, losing sight of his original vision, and betraying his girlfriend Lisa, Elias is threatened with the loss of everything he once held dear, including his personal values. Will blind ambition topple his dot.com empire? Or will his last shot at redemption bring him back to what's really important in life? Log on to Purpose to find out.
