Râmnicu Vâlcea, Romania has only 120,000 residents, but among law enforcement experts, it has a nickname: Hackerville. In the last year alone, $1 billion was stolen in the U.S. by Romanian hackers, who have been caught breaking into the email accounts of NASA, Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush. In this film we travel to the prisons of Romania, the capital city of Bucharest, and beyond to meet the criminals and law enforcement agents at the center of this global phenomenon. Welcome to the Most Dangerous Town on the Internet.
