Director Statement

Three young teenagers are left alone at home without any internet access. The psychological and physiological consequences are devastating: a social-satirical portrait about the madness of the Z-Generation. The unstable boundries of reality and virtuality, that prevail the existenz of the three siblings in times of their digital virality, are broken up. Insecurity and vanity bluntly reveal a generational future that has already become true.
