"The Hacker" by Jay Schnorrer
A young British hacker is forced to work with an ambitious intelligence agent — also his former foster mother — to fulfill the mission left to him by his late parents.

Colin, 19, brilliant hacker and aware of it, has to join forces with Hanna Marlowe, his former foster mother.
Both are after the same man: Raphael Denbigh, head of the UK chapter of G.I.N.A., the Global Intelligence Networking Agency. He killed Colin's birth parents and is twisting GINA's positive mission with his greed.
Yet when suspicions against Marlowe rise, Colin finds unlikely allies in agent Eve Qureshi and intriguing field operative Derec Morgan.

Based on the short film "The Hacker", this new-age thriller steers clear of 'Hollywood hacking' as it navigates international locations and the emotional journey of Colin, its young protagonist, on his quest for family.
