Synopsis

Not handling the upbringing of Slava, Lesia and Ainaz, their families choose an expensive, but promising high-tech decision: to use microchips which will guide their children’s behavior. It looks like a perfect solution for parents who hope to raise well-adapted successful children. They become teenagers and learn that they are the first experimental generation raised this way and start a revolt against technologies, parents and authorities. Friends are fighting for the common goal, but friendship breaks when a love triangle emerges and the system strikes back.
