deepest secrets, our most incriminating information, and of course, a whole lot of money. This is the world of Swordfish.
Gabriel Shear, a charismatic and dangerous spy, needs to get inside this world. If he can get in, billions in illegal
government funds wait for the taking. To actually steal the money, however, he'll need the help of Stanley Jobson, a former
superhacker who's now desperate and penniless. Stanley has been forbidden to get within 50 yards of the nearest electronics
store after doing time for wreaking havoc on the FBI's controversial high-tech cyber surveillance operations. Gabriel and his
beautiful partner Ginger lure Stanley into their clandestine world, baiting him with the things he can't have - a chance to
reunite with Holly, the daughter he lost during a bitter divorce battle and the opportunity to start a new life.
