Dade Murphy is a computer prodigy who at the age of 11 released a virus on the internet that took down 1,507 systems in a single day. The judge sentenced him to probation until his 18th birthday that forbade him from even touching a computer or a touch tone phone until then. Now it's 7 years later and Dade and his mother have relocated to New York City. On the very day of his 18th birthday, Dade delves back into the cyber world from which he has so long been exiled. Things have changed in the last 7 years and it isn't long before Dade finds himself confronted with a hacker called Acid Burn. Dade is in the midst of attempting to remotely control a local television station that Acid Burn has claimed as her turf. Before he knows it, Dade has been summarily shut out. This is not the world he left behind all those years ago. And he can't wait to explore it. His first day at his new high school, Dade falls in with a gang of teenage hackers who have no idea who he really is. But when one of the hackers partially copies a garbage file from a big corporate computer, a program is discovered within the corporate mainframe that is designed to siphon off millions of dollars from the company. The money is then deposited into the offshore bank account of the computer genius in charge of the corporation's IT security. When the teenage hackers are then framed for the implantation of the siphoning program, it's time for Dade to come out of hiding and use the power of the computer hacker brotherhood to take down the corporation's IT genius once and for all. With stunning visuals and a New York City backdrop, cyberspace and those who surf it have never looked so cool.
