Synopsis:
Dominik is the product of a marriage driven by success and ambition between Andrzej, a businessman, and his wife Beata. There are only one hundred days to go before Dominik will leave the country’s finest school. But a series of humiliating experiences with a fellow-student nudges Dominik’s world dangerously off kilter and when he discovers the comments his classmates have posted about him on a social network website, this puts an end to his self-confidence, motivation and concentration. Unable to bear the thought of school any more, Dominik withdraws, drifting into a virtual world. Online he pseudonymously meets Sylwia who tells him she plans to commit suicide. She also introduces him to her friends in the “suicide room”, a chat room for people with suicidal tendencies. Dominik allows Sylwia to lure him into a dangerous game.
