In Dave Franco and Emma Robert's new movie, it pays to be an adrenaline junkie. In what appears to be a not-too-alternate reality, an online game called Nerve allows watchers to submit dares for players to attempt for money.
With a frantic mother (Juliette Lewis) stressing about money, Roberts decides to become a player. Her first dare: kiss a stranger (Dave Franco). Aren't dares supposed to be difficult or something?
But when the dares get riskier, watchers steal their identity. In order to get their lives back, they have to finish the game which could mean life or death.
