Disconnect is a 2013 American thriller drama directed by Henry-Alex Rubin and written by Andrew Stern about just how dangerous is the internet? Beyond the tabloid scare stories, what does it mean to live more and more of our life online? Few films have offered much insight outside of science fiction, but "Disconnect" explores the all-too-real dangers of how we live now. It is slated for an April 12, 2013 release in the United States.


A former Marine, in mourning with his wife, because of the death of their only son James, for SIDS, by succumbing to the credit-sapping allure of online gambling, while his wife begins to confess her secrets to a stranger she's met on a social-media site.

In a parallel story thread, a pair of teenage pranksters play a nasty trick on an outcast classmate - an introverted goth boy with genuine musical talent which drives the boy's mother to inconsolable anguish, and his father to uncontrollable anger. Meanwhile, a TV reporter sets out to tell the story of another young man caught up in selling online sex, but is soon confronted with the impact the publicity might have on his safety.
