Synopsis

A group of teenagers at a secondary school in Zurich yearn for love, acceptance and sex. But the power of social media, with its high-gloss selfies and perpetual pressure towards cooler and sexier, increasingly forces the ids to deny their true feelings and they are pushed towards fulfilling the fantasies they see on their screens. As things spiral our of control, it becomes almost impossible to differentiate between perpetrator and victim, responsibility and desire.
