In a future where the War on Terror is being fought in cyberspace, and elite counter-terrorism task force charged with keeping the internet safe must catch a hacker whose remarkable skills are unlike anything they have ever encountered. In the year 2034, terrorists have taken on a decidedly hi-tech persona. The job of Public Security Section 9 is to ensure that the integrity of the internet is not compromised by terrorists who would effectively bring the information superhighway to a crippling standstill. Previously, it was Major Motoko Kusanagi who was charged with overseeing the investigations of Public Security Section 9. But Major Kusanagi retired from her post two years ago, and now a skilled hacker known only as The Puppeteer is determined to bring the entire technological infrastructure crumbling to the ground. Now, as the members of Section 9 track The Puppeteer, they uncover a vast conspiracy that leads to the highest levels of government. When Major Kusanagi mysteriously reappears, some even begin to suspect that she is in league with the computer savvy terrorist. As the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex continues in this techno-thriller from director Kenji Kamiyama, absolutely no one is above suspicion.
