In this first full-length, uneven feature by novice, 22-year-old director Michael Farkas, Julie (Toni Hudson), a young computer whiz has just been turned down for a good job at a local bank, and on top of that injury, some of the ideas she presented in her bid for the job were stolen by the bank's resident computer specialist. Angry enough to act on what happened, Julie meets up with equally disenchanted Michael (Lee Montgomery) who has been arguing with the bank to put through a wire transfer in a reasonable amount of time. Between the two of them, they fake some ATM cards, and while in the process of skimming off funds from the bank machine, they discover that some big-time international hackers are working on a plot to sink the Federal Reserve Bank. These thieves waste no time in discovering that Julie and Michael are onto their plot, and chase the duo all the way to Washington D.C. where the pair try to convince the F.B.I. that the impending electronic attack on the Federal Reserve Bank is real. The problem is, even if they succeed in convincing the F.B.I. of the plot, already in motion, how can they stop it?
