Mr. Robot is a drama series centered on a cybersecurity expert known as Elliot Anderson (Rami Malek). However, Anderson also suffers from social anxiety disorder and depression. His conditions allow him to see his dead father, but they do not hamper his abilities as a hacker.
Anderson is eventually recruited by an anarchist knows as Mr. Robot. Mr. Robot and his hacktivists plan to hack E. Corp to cancel all debts owed to the company. Elliot works for E. Corp, and he knows how corrupt the company is. However, he is reluctant about involving himself in Mr. Robot’s plans.
As that happens, Elliot’s childhood friend plans to take down E. Corp legally. She wants to gather evidence of E. Corp’s corruption by working from within the company. After several twists and turns, Mr. Robot’s plan comes into play, and all the debt held by the company vanishes.
You might be tempted to think that the hack will signal the end of the series. However, the end of E. Corp signals the beginning of another story. A story in which Elliot has to deal with the unforeseen consequences of the hack.
