Write a short summary of what happens in the film

The film portrays some of the perils of socializing (online) with friends during the lockdown: glitched screens, poor connections, and photobombs are just some of the new challenges that put the virtual hanging out with friends to a test. And we know it's not the best get-together, but definitely, it's the best way to get together.

Cultural / Context information for the jury

With everyone locked up inside their homes, the way of socializing just changed. Now we spend more time seeing our friends screen to screen than face to face. The good part is that modern technology helps us stay connected during lockdowns. Of course, such get-togethers don't always come off without a hitch
