Synopsis

Hitomi’s homeroom tutor is taken away by the police for suspected child prostitution and child pornography. A rumour starts that Hitomi leaked a video of the teacher. She can’t believe anyone would fall for such a lie, but it spreads like wildfire and Hitomi kills herself. The arrest of a teacher and the suicide of his student is easy prey for the media and reporting intensifies, creating a false image of Hitomi. The film portrays the inherent brutality in videos and other media, and brings to light our darkest desires as we consume such materials. These 78 minutes are a stark reminder that we live in the golden era of fake news across the world.
