An experimental docu-drama about suicide and internet. In 1998 and 1999, the film-maker took part in several internet news groups in which the main topic was suicide. The story is partly autobiographical and partly based on the participation of others in the debate. The Dutchman Fred Pelon has made several mainly experimental (short) films and documentaries that have been shown in Holland and abroad.
