BRIEF SYNOPSIS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Angered by government mass surveillance and the unbridled erosion of personal privacy a gang of student hacktivists on an Oxford University campus have designed a game-changer. A quantum encryption app called “Javelin” which they believe is impenetrable to the NSA. But overcome with hubris and naive group thinking, the gang fails to register that it is being closely monitored by covert stakeholders - foreign and domestic, commercial and federal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Senior intelligence officer Daniel Forté’s promising career has been compromised after a disastrous mission overseas, so he languishes behind a desk. He becomes suspicious when reactivated by his mercurial handler, Milligan, and given an incongruous recruiting assignment at Oxford University.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the hidden agenda is gradually revealed, Daniel decides that his only chance of combating Milligan and surviving the coming onslaught lies in the rag-tag band of espionage freshers. Together, they set about turning the tables on their Machiavellian masters.
