An innocent man is strapped to a chair. A shotgun is rigged in the ceiling and aimed at his head. A video camera captures the scene. The clock ticks down 3...2...1... BAM! A sadistic and brutal murder is broadcast live over the internet. One by one a series of ever more gruesome executions goes unchecked as a demented serial killer hijacks the net to play out his sick game. The public is horrified but equally fixated as millions log on to view the online carnage. Enter NYPD cop Charlie Gaines (Armand Assante) who is given the job of tracking down this new breed of digital killer. As he closes in he realises that things have become personal and that he will be the killer's final victim. Will he catch the killer in time or will his old-school, analogue methods ultimately mean his own digital death?
