Synopsis / Plot
Ben bears the cross of being the odd one in his class, the target of the pranks and cruelty of high school bullies. Ben is far more intelligent than the rest of his classmates, but he is also introspective, painfully shy to the point of autism. His life at school is hell but when he gets home, to the shelter of his bedroom, he sits in front of the computer and becomes the lord and the owner of the online game favoured by millions of teenagers, including his tormentors. By means of this game, Ben manages to stay alive, he stops being a victim to become a hero.
