DISCONNECTED by Diederik van Rooijen, based on the book by Linda Jansma
“Let us sacrifice ourselves today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.”
P. J. Abdul Kalam
Logline: To get her children safely out of Iraq, Mara is forced to help stage a terrorist attack on the Netherlands.
Short Synopsis: DISCONNECTED is an exciting and emotional thriller full of plot twists with a bitter-sweet dramatic ending. It tells the story of MARA DE WOLFF, a computer hacker with her own company that specialises in cracking the security systems of big companies. She employs a couple of young hackers who help her out. Well, they do the prep work. She doesn’t need help. Or does she?
You see, Mara has a secret: she has two children, twins, who have been kidnapped and taken to Iraq by her ex-husband JUDA. She hires MARTIN to help her find her children, but so far all their efforts have been in vein.
When one of her trusted hackers, RUDI, puts Mara on the trail of a possible terrorist attack through a leak in the Dutch Broadcasting Group, her world is shattered. She finds files with Arabic names. She will need all her knowledge and expertise to unmask the perpetrators and stay clear of persecution herself.
But then the terrorists decide to use her own children as a bargaining tool. If Mara does not do as they ask, they will kill her children. If she takes part in the terrorist attack and helps to destroy the target, then the cold-hearted woman who leads the cell will reveal the location of her children and guarantee their safety.
