Overview
Boot up for suspense and high-powered excitement as the rebels of the information age fight an electrifying battle in this sharp, cutting-edge adventure. Pulsating with non-stop action and nail-biting tension, Hackers is a hip, fast-paced spectacle American Urban Radio Network calls "an experience you will never forget!"

While practicing the tricks of the trade, a neophyte "hacker" accomplishes the nearly impossible: he hacks the highly secured computer at Ellingson Mineral Corporation. But in doing so, he unknowingly taps into a high-tech embezzling scheme masked by a computer virus with the potential to destroy the world's ecosystem! And when the young hacker and his pals are targeted for the crime, the group must launch a massive cyberspace attack – one that will hopefully clear their names and prevent ecological disaster.
