In the year 2024, Ernest Serano was kidnapped and ransomed; the event was known as the Laughing Man incident due to the involvement of a world-class hacker of the same name. Six years later, the police force Section 9 finds itself in the midst of a terrorist plot and conspiracy unlike anything they've ever known. The Laughing Man - with the ability to hack into even the eyes of those around him - has returned, and his motives are unclear. The Major, Batou, and the rest of Section 9 must race against the clock to determine the reason for the Laughing Man's re-emergence and unravel the twisted conspiracy of major corporations around them...
