(mbc.net) Angela Bennett (Sandra Bullock) is a systems administrator who telecommutes, whose only real-life contact is her ailing mother.  A coworker sends Bennett a diskette containing a backdoor to a popular security system, but perishes in a plane crash before he can discuss its contents with her.

While vacationing in Mexico Angela encounters a man who attempts to seize the disk by force.  She escapes, but discovers that her existence has been erased from public record; her credit cards are invalid, and another individual now inhabits her home.  Now Bennett must defeat a group of cyber terrorists and reclaim her identity.

The Net was nominated for an MTV Movie Award.  It garnered $110 million internationally -- five times its $22 million budget.
