Film Synopsis

A documentary focused on Stuxnet, a piece of self-replicating computer malware that the US and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target.

For the first time, the film tells the complete story of Stuxnet, known as a "worm" for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own. This is the most comprehensive accounting to date of how a clandestine mission hatched by two allies with clashing agendas opened forever the Pandora's Box of cyberwarfare.
