In a world where kids upload their most intimate details and hackers expose the rest, "Social Suicide" examines what it really takes to get noticed on the internet today. ?Loosely based on Romeo and Juliet, "Social Suicide"E is a modern day police investigation into two teen deaths and one apparent attempted suicide. Their prime suspect, Reese, is on the run so they bring in Balthazar, his best friend and the guy who might have captured it all on film. As the police interrogate Balthazar while piecing together masses of footage: CCTV, Jackass style stunts, video blogs, happy slaps, snapchats and mobile uploads, Balthazar plots to escape from custody so he can stop his best friend from committing suicide.

"A gripping teen thriller about the devastating impact of one wrong post." (Producer's note)
