Summary

In 2013, the newly created National Crime Agency uncovered one of the biggest online child abuse cases ever seen in the UK, with hundreds of teenage boys having been duped into sending indecent images of themselves to what they thought were teenage girls online. Many were blackmailed into sending more and more pictures, with chilling threats made against them by an unknown abuser. This film documents the hunt to find the culprit, which would take investigators halfway across the world, and the race against time for social workers to try to locate and protect all the victims, the number of which keeps rising.
