Internet addiction is now a global issue. An increasing number of people, especially young adults, are using the Internet more than ever before. The film delves into a Beijing treatment center and explores the cases of three young Chinese teenagers from the day they arrive at the treatment center through the three months being held there, and then their return to their homes. The film follows both the underlying issues related to their disorders, as well as the manner and treatment the patients receive.
