Next future. People no longer communicate, except within a virtual reality called Néo Kósmo. This ‘parallel’ world can only be accessed by connecting through virtual reality helmets. In a bourgeois family composed of father, mother and two teenage children, a real process of dissociation from reality is taking place. Parents and children they spend whole days on the New World: they work, study, meet up. Absolute silence reigns in the house.
Alésia, the family’s android-atmosphere, realizing that the process of social drift is irreversible, is intent on protecting the family’s youngest child, not yet initiated into the new dimension.
