Jason VandenBerghe, Ubisoft Creative Director, realizes his dream when he and his team develop the ultra-violent game "For Honor." The audience in shown how the magic happens in a multi-billion dollar industry whose sales exceed the worldwide movie box office take.

But while Vikings, knights and samurai clash in the virtual world, the designer has to deal with the higher-ups at Ubisoft, who push him aside to meet deadlines and in order to complete the game to meet their budget.

We also witness the dichotomy as VandenBerghe claims to disdain violence in real life, while helping an industry make billions with savage games.
