About the Film
Three neighbors at a provincial suburb are overtaken by the life-altering capabilities of social media. A grown woman is struggling to keep the respect of her son after the emergence of a secret, a young woman falls victim to online bullying, and a third lady faces challenges with her Uber ratings. While seeking the assistance of small-time crooks and a genuine hacker, the neighbors decide to resist the mighty windmills of contemporary living—the Big Tech companies. While their battle may be destined to fail from the start, the trials and tribulations of their journey make for an interesting adventure.
