In 1989, Kevin Flynn, the CEO of ENCOM and the creator of The Grid, a virtual world populated by programs called ISOs (Isomorphic Algorithms), tells his young son Sam about his adventures in The Grid and his plans to reveal its existence to the world. However, he mysteriously disappears that night and is presumed dead.
In 2023, Sam, now a rebellious 27-year-old, is the primary shareholder of ENCOM but has no interest in running the company. He hacks into the ENCOM server and releases their latest operating system for free, evading the security forces with the help of his friend Alan Bradley, a former colleague of Kevin and the creator of Tron, a security program loyal to Kevin. Alan tells Sam that he received a pager message from Kevin's old arcade, where he finds a hidden basement with a large computer. He activates the computer and is transported into The Grid by a laser.
Sam is captured by Clu's forces and sent to participate in gladiatorial games, where he faces Rinzler, a skilled warrior who recognizes him as Kevin's son. Sam is rescued by Quorra, an ISO who takes him to meet Kevin, who is living in exile in a safe house. Kevin explains that he created Clu to help him build a perfect system, but Clu became obsessed with perfection and betrayed him, killing Tron and most of the ISOs in a coup. Kevin also reveals that he has a device called the Identity Disc that can allow him to escape The Grid and deactivate Clu, but Clu stole it from him and has been looking for him ever since.
Sam decides to retrieve the Identity Disc from Clu's headquarters with Quorra's help. They go to meet Zuse/Castor, a flamboyant program who runs a nightclub and claims to have connections with Clu. However, Zuse betrays them to Clu's right-hand man Jarvis, who arrives with his army. A fight ensues, during which Quorra is injured and Zuse is killed by Clu. Sam escapes with Quorra on a light jet, while Kevin reunites with his old friend Gem, an information program who helps him locate Sam.
Sam and Quorra are pursued by Rinzler and Clu on light jets. They manage to evade them and land on a solar sailer, where they are joined by Kevin. Kevin heals Quorra and reveals that she is the last surviving ISO. He also tells Sam that he was working on a miracle algorithm that could revolutionize science and technology in the real world, but Clu wants to use it to invade and conquer the real world. He says that they need to reach the portal before it closes, or they will be trapped in The Grid forever.
They are attacked by Rinzler on the solar sailer. Kevin recognizes Rinzler as Tron, who has been reprogrammed by Clu. He tries to appeal to Tron's original identity, but fails. Quorra sacrifices herself by jumping onto Rinzler's light jet and causing it to crash. Sam and Kevin continue on the solar sailer until they reach Clu's warship, where they find Quorra alive and disguised as one of Clu's soldiers. They board a smaller ship and head for the portal.
Clu confronts them on their ship and demands Kevin's Identity Disc. Kevin apologizes to Clu for creating him with an impossible goal and tells him that he is his son. Clu rejects Kevin's offer of reconciliation and attacks him. Sam fights Clu and retrieves Kevin's Identity Disc, while Quorra fights Rinzler. Rinzler regains his memory as Tron and turns against Clu, sacrificing himself to allow Sam, Kevin, and Quorra to escape. Clu pursues them to the portal, where Kevin uses his Identity Disc to destroy himself and Clu in a massive explosion.
Sam and Quorra emerge from the portal in the real world, where they are greeted by Alan. Sam takes Quorra on his motorcycle and shows her the sunrise. He also decides to take over ENCOM and make it a better company. He also sends a message to Alan, telling him that he found his father and that he is with him.
