The protagonist Elliot, who decided to become a hacker, finds himself in the center of the struggle between the company where he works and underground organizations trying to recruit Elliot with the goal of breaking down powerful American corporations.
Elliot is a brilliant young programmer who works as a cybersecurity engineer during the day and as a hacker at night. The hero suffers from a strange disease, like schizophrenia, which he tries in vain to control, regularly taking both legal and illegal drugs and visiting his therapist. Once a mysterious young woman named Darlene and a man calling himself Mr. Robot offer Elliot a chance to prove himself and help them destroy the large financial company E-Corp, where the main character works. Mr. Robot also claimed to be the leader of an underground hacker group known as the F-Society, and another mysterious organization called the Dark Army is their ally. That is how Elliot finds himself in a difficult position: to betray his own corporation or become a hero in the world of hackers.
