How far would you go for free Wi-Fi? In this humorous Japanese short, our protagonist Dobashi has just moved into a new apartment, but disastrously he has no internet connection yet. Unable to stream his favourite films, he notices that there is a Wi-Fi signal emanating from the Sada family next door. To get the password, he will have to step into the neighbours' house, and when he does, he finds himself stepping into a lot more than he ever bargained for!
