Benjamin (TOM SCHILLING) is invisible, a nobody. This changes abruptly when he meets charismatic Max (ELYAS M'BAREK). Even though they couldn't seem more different from the outside, they share the same interest: hacking. Together with Max's friends, the impulsive Stephan (WOTAN WILKE MÖHRING) and paranoid Paul (ANTOINE MONOT), they form the subversive Hacker collective CLAY (CLOWNS LAUGHING @ YOU). CLAY provokes with fun campaigns and speaks for a whole generation. For the first time in his life, Benjamin is part of something and even the attractive Marie (HANNAH HERZSPRUNG) begins noticing him. But fun turns into deadly danger when CLAY appears on the BKA's (Bundeskriminalamt, Federal Criminal Police Office) as well as Europol's most wanted list. Hunted by Cybercrime investigator Hanne Lindberg (TRINE DYRHOLM), Benjamin is no longer a nobody, but instead one of the most wanted hackers in the world.Written by

Netflix-CEO Reed Hastings recommended this movie in an interview with the German magazine "Journalist" in February 2016, calling it a "truely great story". He added, that it's these kind of unusual plots they are searching for at Netflix. Movie-Director bo Odar and the producers Berg and Wiedemann are now creating the first Netflix-Original in Germany. The series "Dark" about four German families, tragically connected through a dark secret, is set for 2017. See more »
During the chase scene that takes place in The Hague, Benjamin flees into the metro tunnels, the train passing by there, though, is clearly a type that one shouldn't find in The Haugue's, but only in Berlin's metro system.
Also The Hague has no real Metro system, just 'trams' that stay above ground except for the few stops between Central Station and Grote Markt Straat. See more »
MRX has three rules: First: no system is safe. Second: Aim for the impossible. Third: Have fun in cyberspace and meat space.

The opening credits of the film consists of animated computer hardware sequences, where it revolves around the mind of the protagonist (who is a computer hacker). No names were actually credited in the beginning. See more »
