When the escape in the internet becomes a problem...
Over the course of their lives, most people learn how to use a computer to their benefit. But some aren't that lucky and get caught inside a screen-based virtual world. Addiction specialists speak here of "pathologic computer and Internet use". It's a relatively new condition, which is not only limited to computer games but also include Internet and social network addictions. The movie focuses on the patient Christian (name changed), who is being treated for Internet addiction at AHG Clinic in Schweriner See, Germany.
