Director Statement

A romantic song plays late at night from the darkened living room of a luxury villa. An unknown figure sways to the rhythm of the music, manipulating a rope tied into the loop of a gallows. All this is broadcast live to thousands of viewers. How is it possible for such a situation to occur? I am convinced that social networks influence our behaviour and directly encourage violence. They unite and divide, liberate and become a noose wrapped around our necks. The folly of the whole situation. How incomprehensibly overreacting to one social media post. But most people don't understand the problem. We are not very aware that it is changing the world around us. The dangers of social networking may be talked about and movies made, but I decided to go the route of a suspenseful story that is readable by as many viewers as possible.
