102 min.DK/Feature

Technopolis, in the near future. Webmaster JB works for the powerful, feared Stoiss. But when a stranger hacks his way into Stoiss' cyber empire and steals money, JB is presented with the challenge of a lifetime: he must find the thief within 35 hours, or his artificial heart will stop when its timer runs out - only Stoiss can reverse the death sentence. JB gets help from his female assistant, tough bounty hunter Miauv, who is secretly in love with him. But it soon turns out that she faces powerful competition from Stoiss' beautiful femme fatale of a mistress, who is out to seduce JB.

Love is put to the test in Thomas Borch Nielsen's debut feature, a vision of a dystopic future, a fantastic universe populated by fabulous, fairytale figures and eccentrics, with heroes and villains, cool chicks, action and brutality.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
