Nick is invisible. On the outside, no one knows his name. There is no record of his birth; no history whatsoever. He is anonymous. And that’s how he survives. That’s how they all survive in “The Family.”
The Family is a group of criminals that has thrived for hundreds of years under a cloak of total secrecy. No law enforcement agency even knows they exist. Anonymity is their golden rule. Violating that rule means you are no longer a “nobody.” You become a “somebody” and you are on your own.
Inside The Family, he’s Nicabar Lakatos, a 15 year-old computer wunderkind and next- generation thief. Raised and trained by his grandfather and his mysterious Uncle Boris, Nick makes the Family millions of dollars using his skills as a hacker.
Then everything goes wrong.
Betrayed by someone in The Family, his grandfather is murdered and Nick runs to stay alive. Going “off the grid,” he flees everything he knows and ends up in the small desert town of Canaan, California. There he is taken in by a local restaurant owner; a single mother, raising two children, a young boy and a teenage girl. Nick empathizes with the young boy, who is an outcast among his peers. He teaches him to believe in himself and introduces him to the empowering world of computers. With the help of the locals he learns what love and friendship really are, helps local law enforcement deal with a gang of drug dealers terrorizing the town, and finally returns to his world to expose The Family and bring them down.
