The year is 2030 and six years have passed since a criminal known only as The Laughing Man swept through top medical nanotechnology firms committing acts of cyber-terrorism, kidnapping, extortion, and corporate espionage leaving no known suspects. New information is revealed to Japan's top homeland security force, drawing Major Kusanagi and Section 9 into the hunt for a suspect capable of hacking the eyes of every operative, obscuring all details of his appearance and leaving behind a trail of copycats and hacked cyborg citizens.

The Laughing Man tells the story of the entire first season of Stand Alone Complex as a 2-hour film.
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...
