Filmmakers Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia offer a thought-provoking glimpse into the perils of living online by paying a visit to a Chinese treatment facility designed to cure Internet-addicted teens. As the young subjects are encouraged to spend less time on their computers and more time in the real world, they discuss the many reasons they feel drawn to online communities, and how they've become increasingly isolated from their friends and families.
