    • Alex (McAuliffe), the son of Ukrainian immigrants, moves to Toronto in search of greater opportunities and a better life. However, life in Canada has its own troubles when his mother and father struggle to find employment. A young Alex takes refuge in his computer and over the years becomes a very capable coder. He eventually uses his computer skills to join up with an online criminal organization called DarkWeb. With the help of DarkWeb he learns to rip off credit cards, ATMs, break into banks and eventually the stock market. As the size and scope of his endeavors grows he partners with Kira and Sye. The three young online criminals are raking in the money, but very soon they attract the attention of both the authorities and the dangerous criminals behind DarkWeb. The three partners find themselves on the run relying on their wits and computer abilities to stay alive and hopefully get away with some of the money they’ve made over the years.
