Plot summary

TPB AFK is a documentary about three computer addicts who redefined the world of media distribution with the file-sharing network The Pirate Bay. Just how did hacker Gottfrid Svartholm-Warg, Internet activist Peter Sunde and beer aficionado Fredrik Neij cause the White House to threaten the Swedish government with trade sanctions? TPB AFK tells the inside story of how a cluster of “hacktivists” built the Internet’s largest file-sharing site.
