Cav and Jed are best friends. When Marek - a Polish teenager - arrives at their school, Jed takes an instant dislike to him. He sets up a fake social networking profile in Marek's name and posts false information and hurtful comments. Cav realises that this might be upsetting for Marek, but joins in the cyberbullying of their new classmate along with other students. Cav also gets an email from his bank requesting personal information, which he submits without realising it is phishing. He then uses his own social networking profile to advertise a party at his house. Unwisely, he has not placed any restrictions on those who are allowed to view his online profile, and this leads to a series of unfortunate events...
