The synopsis of Choose or Die has been sourced from IMDb:

A broke student who, in pursuit of an unclaimed $100,000 prize, plays an obscure 1980s survival computer game. Ater a series of unexpectedly terrifying moments, she soon realizes she’s no longer playing for the money, but for her own life.

Who are the cast members of Choose or Die ?

Asa Butterfield should be an instantly recognizable face for most Netflix subscribers thanks to his lead role as Otis in the incredibly raunchy comedy Sex Education.
