female game player that plugs into a war game. If she is killed she becomes a vegetative invalid. She has a pet bassett hound. She has to kill her enemy to get to the final level. The film is eastern european from the 90’s(?)
Quote from the movie’s IMDb page:
“In a future world, young people are increasingly becoming addicted to an illegal (and potentially deadly) battle simulation game called Avalon. When Ash, a star player, hears of rumors that a more advanced level of the game exists somewhere, she gives up her loner ways and joins a gang of explorers. Even if she finds the gateway to the next level, will she ever be able to come back to reality?”
It is a Polish (Eastern European) movie, the female player is called Ash, and she has a pet basset dog.
