“What is the cost of being good?”
Click and it’s gone — too far, too fast.
Explicit photos go public, real-world consequences of virtual life go viral and so does everyone’s opinion. Leilah is wondering if her Instagram is more of a burden than ‘living her best life’. Billy’s queer and proud but ignored by the education system; they’re tired of feeling invisible. Aarron is learning how to be a man online and it’s starting to feel toxic. And Maisy, well Maisy’s not that into sex, thank you very much. Thrown together, these four confront their differences and realise their power to make change. Written by Charlie Josephine (I Joan, Shakespeare’s Globe) and directed by Rob Watt (Human Nurture).
