Maisie Wil­liams stars as Casey Ja­cobs, a teenage girl who like many oth­ers is in con­stant dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion with her friends, whether it’s by text, so­cial me­dia or video chats. How­ever, she’s about to be faced with the darker side of ef­fec­tively liv­ing her life on­line when she’s tar­geted by an anony­mous hacker. Her or­deal plays out in real time, and while what hap­pens may seem ex­treme, it’s cer­tainly not beyond the realms of pos­si­bil­ity or mov­ing into Black Mir­ror’s ‘what if?’ ter­ri­tory – wor­ry­ingly, the events de­picted have been in­spired by real-life cases.
