In "Paranoia," Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is a low-level worker in the tech industry who has always wanted more for his life. He wants to rise within the ranks but until then makes do with using his skills and experience for hacking for fun. After a prank lands him in the office of his company's CEO, Adam is surprised when he's offered a big opportunity. CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) wants to hire Adam to work as a spy in a rival firm. Adam will get all the benefits of being a higher up in the company but has to steal secrets to return back to Wyatt in return.
Adam goes along with the plan and goes to work for Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford). Things are going well until Adam tries to end his work with Wyatt only to learn that Wyatt has much bigger plans for him. Things worsen when Jock reveals that he knew about the deception all along, plus an FBI agent (Josh Holloway) comes after him and his love interest (Amber Heard) begins to wonder if he was simply using her all along. In a difficult spot, Adam is forced to find a way to take both rival companies down and save himself.
