A thriller set in the world of teenagers on the Internet in the era of social media. Two groups of young people from different worlds, representing two different value systems, face each other as a result of risky decisions made by adults. What was intended to be a lesson in responsibility and tolerance turns out to be a tough fight for leadership. On the one hand, there is faith in noble ideals, and on the other hand the violent law of ‘might is right’. The young people, isolated from the outside world and locked in a group full of tensions, reveal their true, shocking faces. This is another step after Sala samobójców (Suicide Room) on the road in search of the truth about what drives the choices of young people today. It’s a contemporary attempt to address dramatic questions in the spirit of the famous Lord of the Flies, with characters standing on the verge of adulthood.
