About Rice Tea

Seth Arnott is not your typical undergraduate student. Gifted and bored, he uses his computer skills and an uncanny understanding of the telephone network to unleash pranks across campus and town.

Together with his good friend Gabriel and newcomer Kerstin, Seth's gags escalate as they take over movie theater phone systems and wireless connections at coffee shops. When the trio accidentally listen in on the work of a computer criminal during one of their escapades, they decide to blog about it on their website.

Within a day of encountering the criminal, the pranksters find themselves at the focus of a police investigation. They have been framed, somehow, for operating one of the world's largest networks of infected computers. Confused, the three students barely avoid arrest and flee underground in an attempt to piece together the events and hopefully prove their innocence. What follows is an exciting journey through the world of cyber-crime.

Based on true events.
