In the middle of the outback, a stolen 4WD collides with a transport truck. Two local kids in the car are badly hurt . Someone should have called for help , but they didn’t. They didn’t because they work for an international research project no-one talks about and their cargo is a prohibited substance . The accident would have remained a mystery were it not for Ned (Dan Spielman) and Jesse Banks (Ashley Zukerman) . Ned is a young internet journalist desperate for a break , and Jesse is his troubled younger brother whose obsession with hacking has got him into serious difficulties. Ned and Jesse Banks are given a poisoned chalice when a phone video of the outback accident arrives in their in-box . Their decision to dig deeper drags the brothers into the darkest heart of politics, the web of black marketeers and the international agencies that monitor and manipulate them . Together , they suddenly become the unlikeliest crusaders for democracy . The question is just how far those in authority will go to keep their explosive secret safe - and just how far the two brothers will go to reveal the truth .
