DK 201997' da

Benjamin is gifted with a knack for technology, but he uses that to falsify test results for himself and other classmates. After an enigmatic incident at school, Benjamin and Savannah, the new kid at the children's home, attract the attention of the secret service. And that turns out to be related to the disappearance of Benjamin's mother several years ago. Will the boy outsmart secret agents and find out the truth about his mother?

The director and screenwriter Poul Berg has made many TV series for children and youth. His first feature-length family film Hacker won The Bronze Horse for best film in the category 6-10 years at Stockholm Film Festival Junior 2019.

Curator's point of view: A tense adventure drama with a Nordic feel covering also technologies and social subjects.
