Benjamin is a nobody, an outsider. This changes when he meets the charismatic Max. The two of them couldn‘t be more different, but they share one mutual interest: hacking. Together with Max‘s friends, impulsive Stephan and paranoid Paul they form the subversive hacker group CLAY (CLOWNS LAUGHING @ YOU). CLAY provokes with hilarious hacks and has the finger on the pulse of a whole generation. For the first time in his life Benjamin feels like he belongs and even attractive Marie starts to notice him. What started out as fun soon turns deadly serious, when Benjamin and CLAY are suddenly investigated by German Secret Service and Europol. With Hanne Lindberg, the leading Europol cybercrime investigator, at their heels, Benjamin starts to realize that he is no longer a nobody, but one of the most wanted hackers of the world.
