A political thriller that charts the exploits of disillusioned ex-hacker Terell Lessor. A return to New York, coupled with a humiliating attempt at getting a new job, serves as the catalyst for him to take action against those who slighted him in the past. Employing strategically placed spy-cams, and operating in tandem with backer, strategist and lover Olivia, he captures compromising footage and broadcasts the edited clips via a newly-minted website. Recognizing the power of their model, the two begin to target CEOs, politicians, those who represent the worst of the establishment. Soon Terell's every move is front-page news, law enforcement is after him, and copy-catters are taking his abduction-and-confession model to extremes he never imagined. With these forces colliding, Terell has to decide whether his actions are sustainable - a decision that will compromise his agenda, his first taste of romance, and his physical wellbeing. Written by
A gun, a video and the Internet - The truth will be told.
This surprisingly, well motivated and tightly scripted story is about a embittered young man who turns to an extreme method of protest via the Internet. Terell (Eugene Byrd) is a computer genius hacker, who returns to New York after an extending absence to face his old business partner, his family and try to bring a little more justice by spreading the truth with his spy camera videos. Olivia Averill (Ali Larter) is a sensual intense Columbia grad student who is driven to find a way to report on social content. Their worlds cross in a very unexpected way that forces Terell to hide his real identity. When his video protests hit the media, he becomes more like a comic book hacker hero whose followers quickly get out of control. Excellent and believable and filled out roles, all around, for the versatile William Sadler as a Senator caught in the crossfire, Glenn Fitzgerald as a savvy but ruthless business partner, Scott Cohen as a really mad, enraged media executive and the very polished Melissa Leo as Terell's mother.
