Based loosely on the tragic "Blue Whale Challenge" which circulated online in 2016, this short is a profoundly unsettling look at the nefarious power of social media. Disturbed IT genius Yousef, spends his reclusive hours sat in front of a computer trying to lure young children into his wicked online game. Once engaged, he slowly convinces them to self-harm, before ultimately pushing them to commit suicide.
