Plagued was a really fun opportunity to highlight an aspect of millennial culture that doesn’t receive much attention. We live in a world that is so wildly and unbelievably connected and yet we often feel so isolated. To formulate your own unique opinion or view point on something that strays away from the social norms is often frowned upon. What does it feel like to have a different view on the world than most of your friends? This idea really inspires me and provokes a lot of questions for me. I hope you enjoy the film!
