'The Net' Synopsis

Like all of us, Angela Bennett (Sandra Bullock) lives in the age of information. Every trace of her existence is computerized. Everything about her is encoded somewhere on a complex network of information. It's something Angela never thought about... until the day she was deleted.

With the explosion of technological advances in the last few years, "The Net" is a story virtually torn from today's headlines. It takes place in a world in which anything, from ordering a pizza to retrieving records from half-way across the planet, can be accomplished through the vast and complicated map of phone lines and computers known as the Internet; a world in which, with the right knowledge and the right program, a good hacker can log into remote computers and alter any information they choose: flight plans, medical and criminal records, top secret government information, even someone's identity...

Sandra Bullock stars as Angela Bennett, Cathedral Systems' top analyst. As a well-paid freelancer, she spends her days ironing out bugs in games designed for adolescent boys or tracking down viruses hacked into unsuspecting systems, and her nights "chatting" with other shy cyber-jockeys on the 'Net'. She's quite happy with her sheltered, if somewhat lonely routine...until the very life she's made for herself pushes her headlong into the middle of a murderous web of corruption and conspiracy.
