Plot synopsis
Three friends went to the beach to sunbathe and take a break from the daily hustle and bustle. On the shore, they saw a bunch of rescuers and divers who pulled a corpse out of the water. It is the deceased who raises an important problem that few people really think about. And it is connected with the fact that in the modern world a person is very dependent on technology. A person must have emotions, because they are so created. However, virtual reality has burst into the world of these emotions. The younger generation has become more cynical and selfish, and this will not lead to anything good. We will see a typical trip to the beach in three different ways, as each character looks at it differently.
