In this melodramatic cyberpunk thriller, a white-breaded hacker moves into the vacant apartment of a BBS (electronic bulletin board) operator who has mysteriously vanished, takes over the board, and assumes her virtual persona. The man is soon addicted to the labyrinthine pathways of the Internet and the web. He is so into it, that he doesn't notice that he is being stalked by deadly "information brokers." Eventually he is electrocuted while trying to plug himself into his computer.
