Á árunum 1978–1985 stóð Ted Kaczynski, fyrrum stærðfræðiprófessor, einsamall fyrir sprengjuherferð gegn fólki innan úr bandaríska tæknigeiranum; þrír létu lífið & 23 særðust. Hvaða erindi á Kaczynskisem gefið hafði akademískan feril upp á bátinn fyrir einfalt líf úti í náttúrunni—í kaleidóskópíska frásögn af netheimum & hryðjuverkum, útópíustjórnmálum & amerískri andmenningu, LSD & CIA, sálfræðingnum Timothy Leary & eðlifræðingnum Heinz von Förster, rithöfundinum Ken Kesey & síkadelísku rokkhljómsveitinni Grateful Dead?

Um miðbik 20. aldar kom fram á sjónarsviðið herskari hugsuða vopnaður nýjum uppgötvunum í tækni & vísindum, stýri- & kerfisfræði, margmiðlunarlist, hernaði & sálfræði, sem áttu eftir að hafa gríðarleg áhrif á flestum sviðum mannlegrar tilveru. Samhliða örri þróun internetsins á síðasta fjórðungi 20. aldar vöknuðu upp áleitar spurningar um áhrif takmarkalausra framfara í upplýsingatækni á náttúru & samfélag. Í óhefðbundinni & ögrandi heimildamynd sinni skoðar Dammbeck þessa sögu & tvinnar saman við bréfaskipti sín & lífstíðarfangans Kaczynskis.

From 1978 to 1985, former math professor Ted Kaczynski ran a lone-wolf bombing campaign, targeting individuals from within the U.S. techno-industry—of whom three died & 23 were injured. Where does Kaczynski—who had turned his back to an academic career for a simple life in rural Montana—fit into a kaleidoscopic narrative, including the internet & terrorism, utopian politics & American counter-culture, LSD & CIA, psychologist Timothy Leary & physicist-philosopher Heinz von Förster, author Ken Kesey & psychedelic rock-group Grateful Dead?

In the mid-20th century, a network of thinkers came forth with new discoveries in science & technology, cybernetics & systems theory, multimedia art, psychology & military research—affecting all spheres of human life. With the development of the internet during the last quarter of the 20th century, the question arose: What does the unlimited development of information technology mean for nature & society? In his unorthodox & provocative documentary, Dammbeck examines this story—interweaving it with his & Kaczynski correspondence.
