An A-student's life is turned upside-down when inappropriate status updates and photos appear on her online profile. She claims she is being set up, but no one believes her. Her only solace during this crisis is her mother. Now she must figure out who is hacking her profile before her reputation and chance to get into a good college are ruined. Maybe it's her ex-boyfriend, a jealous friend competing for the same scholarship or someone far more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Written by IMDb Editor

A must-see for future technological audiences
1 February 2014 | by procanaluminumSee all my reviews

Great movie! I don't understand all the rips on this film. My wife & I decided to watch this movie so we could stand up for what is right in the film industry. What did people expect? The movie hit on an important topic of cyber bullying, as well as smothers. I recommend it to people with common sense & good tastes with real expectations. Rated 7 out of 10. Considering we need a max. of 10 lines, I will point out that the student/teacher relationship was a little absurd, as well as the mother seemed flaky at times when her daughter appeared to be suffering from depression. For a TV movie, it had a decent budget & a good cast. People need to realize that cinema isn't reality & sometimes we need a good dose of a reality check. A mother felt the need to protect her child at all costs, which meant social suicide for her daughter.
