| A journey into the jungle of digital footprints
An American mystery thriller. A story about a father trying to find his missing 16-year-old daughter with the help of a police detective. The film is set entirely on computer screens and smartphones devices which provides the medium by which the lead character conducts his investigations online and seemingly live. The timely premise of the dangers of online behaviour and associated social media reaction - perverted or genuine - to criminal events gives this film a fresh feel. This film is not an entirely new format of storytelling but the race against time story works well and is well paced and succinct and produces good tension throughout.
