Kiran, a high-profile hacker who was recruited for the MI5 at a young age has grown up and is on his biggest mission yet, remotely diffusing a bomb to save the MI5 team and civilians. Kiran successfully diffuses the bomb and realises multiple missed calls and a voicemail from his dad. The voicemail plays, connoting his mother has just passed away.

Kiran goes back for dinner back at the family home for the first time in years to pay respects to his mum who passed away. His father (John) quickly raises an issue regarding the insurance settlement. Their dad has bills to pay for the family home and without this settlement they will lose the house. The next day the sons agree to speak to the insurance company. They are greeted by a pretty receptionist who is new at her job, she directs them to the manager in the corner office. When discussing the issue with their father’s settlement the insurance company are very vague and don’t give any reasoning into the delay. They brush away the brothers rudely.

That night Kiran decides to take matters into his own hands to save their family home. He goes into his old room and boots up his old 1990’s desktop. He starts hacking and coding but can’t find a way in. The computed keeps freezing and is getting further unresponsive. Kiran resorts to old notebooks which he realises have been annotated over since he last used them. David walks in to find Kiran with code on his screen, he glances over and realises that he might have a resolution. Kiran is shocked to see his brother following the same path as him. David starts writing code on the old desktop but starts smoking and shuts down. David offers Kiran to use his new computer and they work together to hack and obtain this money. They run to ATMs to withdraw the cash and hide it in the family home.

The next morning Kiran is woken up by the sound of their doorbell ringing. There are blue and red flashing lights coming from the window. David wakes up and realise that their dad is missing, they automatically think the worst. Kiran opens the door to the police who advice the sons that there is an open investigation into the death of their mother and their father is the primary suspect who has been seen leaving the country in the early hours of the morning. Police then go on to say that they have also come to arrest David as they have tracked the IP of his computer to the hack of an insurance company. Kiran being the big brother steps in and admits it’s all him and David was not involved. Kiran says he can take them to the money which they hid last night. The money is gone. Kiran and David connect for a moment and Kiran is taken away.

There is a voiceover from the MI5 boss describing how Kiran singlehandedly tracked down his father and remotely turned around a plane to return his father back to the UK. Because of Kiran’s work for his country, he will only serve 3 months for the hacking of the insurance company. Kiran and David connect and rekindle their brotherhood before saying their goodbyes.
