In his feature film debut, director Javier Espinoza tells the story of several high school students who use social media in various destructive ways. From girls who navigate the world of social media “fame,” to guys who use dating apps to hook up, the impact of social media on youth culture is seen.

In this day and age where news of social media misuse is commonplace, this film explores topics like cyber-bullying, self-esteem and body issues, relationships, and other ways social media can affect our daily lives. As director Javier Espinoza mentioned, “I wanted to explore the issues with social media that young people are going through right now.”  These issues are prevalent, yet they have not been fully explored in film. The filmmaker hopes to raise awareness for these issues and start a conversation about the role social media plays in our society.
