Oswald 'Ozzy' Paxton (Vincent Kartheiser) is a PlayfulHacker who is forced to take his stepsister Melissa (Katie Stewart) to her prep school Shady Glen (where he was kicked out after a prank) after being busted by his parents for downloading an illegal copy of the game ''Scream II'' (no relation to [[Film/{{Scream 1996}} the film]]). Before leaving, Ozzy decides to pull one last prank...until he sees men armed with guns arriving on the scene.

Turns out Rafe Bentley (Creator/PatrickStewart--yes, ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration that]]'' Creator/PatrickStewart), Shady Glen's new head of security, has hatched a plan to hold the children of Shady Glen as ransom to extort money from their wealthy parents. So now Ozzy has to use his hacker skills to save the day.
