The devilishly attractive Tom Swift (Tian Richards) is a guy many men would kill to be or be with. He is a man who has the world in the palm of his hand.

In addition to his vast intellect, roguish wit, and an endless supply of designer sneakers, Tom will rely on his closest companions. They are his best friend Zenzi (Ashleigh Murray), whose unabashed and unvarnished candour keeps Tom grounded while she forges a path for herself as a business visionary; his bodyguard Isaac (Marquise Vilsón), whose fierce commitment to his chosen family is complicated by his own simmering feelings for Tom; and his AI.

But, unknown to Tom, his mother’s plea is motivated by her own dark secrets. Furthermore, Tom’s path is crossed by the intriguing and dangerous Rowan (Albert Mwangi). He who has secret objectives and strong mutual connection. While Tom navigates these emotionally charged tensions, his missions will necessitate his ingenuity and flare for creativity, led by romance, friendship, and unsolved cosmic riddles.
