Colin can't cope with the real world.

So he spends his days hiding behind his computer screen, writing software and trying to minimise contact with other humans. But when a group of hackers pulls off a cryptocurrency heist for which Colin finds himself publicly held responsible, his carefully constructed, safe little life swiftly starts to crumble.

In order to regain what he once had he must come out from behind his monitor to track down the hackers and restore his reputation, on a journey that will cause him to re-evaluate everything he believes about himself.
