Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2018

A six-part, fast-paced thriller, HACKERVILLE kicks off when a hacking attack on a major German bank is traced to a local network in Romania. Federal Criminal Police Office cyber-crime expert Lisa Metz is dispatched from Frankfurt to Timisoara, the city of her birth, to work with local investigators led by Romanian cop Adam Sandor. As she rides the rollercoaster of life in contemporary Romania, Lisa is forced to confront uncomfortable secrets from her family’s past. Meanwhile, Sandor’s own investigation is turned upside down by Lisa’s arrival on his patch. When Lisa and Sandor are led to a genius hacker, nicknamed Dark Mole, the three are thrust together in an emotional triangle that starts with extreme distrust but ends with mutual dependence.
