Gifted hacker Benjamin is an outsider who only feels at home in the virtual reality. When he makes the acquaintance of charismatic Max, he gets the chance to demonstrate his talent to a wider audience: Max introduces Benjamin to the hacker collective CLAY (Clowns Laughing At You), which he runs with his friends Stephan and Paul. Eschewing political goals, they want to grab attention with fun guerilla actions. Yet as they increasingly gain popularity in the web community, the young hackers become more and more daring. Eventually, they are targeted by the authorities – and suddenly Benjamin is the most-wanted hacker in the world.
