Anonymous is a collective of hackers and activists well known for its attacks on the websites of large groups such as Scientology, PayPal and Sony. The hacktivists in the group reject hierarchies, fighting for freedom of expression and against the financial and economic power of the multinational corporations. Their actions have redefined the concept of civil disobedience on the Internet. Using the testimonies of activists and experts, the documentary reconstructs the group's history from the start - the Cult of the Dead Cow hackers and such reference sites as 4chan - right up their political maturity and the role that they have been playing in the Arab Spring and in the Occupy movement. Born as a forum on the web, Anonymous has become a global movement capable of shirking off all attempts to bend it to other uses.
