In a panicked city that lives and moves with the fear of terror threats, where the Authorities monitor everyone and everything with cameras, and where the reality is too often not that what it seems, Alec, a nineteen-year-old student, records unwittingly a video of the authorities killing one of his fellow students. Simone, his enigmatic fellow student, who is with him at the time, disappears without a trace. With this video, Alec exposes the authorities, who are now searching for him. Alec’s father, who works in the city’s telecoms company, finds out by accident what is going on. For the first time in his life, he wonders what to do. What does the truth look like? Who is the “enemy”? Who is behind all of these criminal actions that spread terror? Is Rosa’s attitude, who is the younger sister of Alec, the only thing that can give hope?
