After hitting the dotcom lottery, reformed computer hacker Brian Mercer retires to a life of ease on Lake Charlevoix, only to watch his portfolio tank when the tech bubble bursts. Resigning himself to rejoining the workforce, Brian finds that his skills as a computer programmer are no longer in demand. He works a series of unrewarding jobs until he falls in love with Miiko, a young Japanese musician who feels an odd sexual attraction to her cello. Mikko introduces Brian to Grampa Sam, a former Yakuza boss who claims to have come across a method of divining stock prices using the Chinese I Ching. Under the guidance of Grampa Sam, Brian begins to repair his tattered stock portfolio -- until the FBI takes notice of his unusual trading activity. Convinced that he is engaging in fraudulent stock trading, the FBI arrests him and Brian is forced to return to his hacker ways to track down the true culprit
