Machines create the Matrix, a dream-like world set in 1999, to extend the lives of the comatose human batteries - or this happens centuries later.
'The One' learns he can manipulate the Matrix world through thought, and escapes to the underground human stronghold of Zion - or something else happens.
Morpheus born in a Matrix womb, freed in childhood - believe that and you'll believe anything.
