Synopsis

A young man is obsessed with his mobile phone. Worried because his battery is running low, he gets into all kinds of trouble because of his beloved gadget – he loses his job, crashes his car and even falls into a sewage pit. Is this the end of the love affair between man and machine? Told in hilarious flashbacks, ‘10%’ is a witty take on everyone’s dependence on mobiles that rings timely and true.
