Write a short summary of what happens in the film

At the heart of the film is a girl. She stands addressing the camera in the beginning. It’s her voice we hear, telling us the story. We return to her throughout the film We cut through a montage of homes and people. Many different ones. Some dark and enclosed. Others more open. We see people living in them and how they've adjusted to staying inside with scented sprays, solar lamps and delivery services. This is daily life. We finally return to the girl who's in a museum observing this "Indoor Generation" as an exhibition. At the very end of the film we see her looking straight to the camera and saying “You will decide how this story ends.” She’s putting her trust in us. She’s asking us to listen. So we will listen.
