Bored computer game players in the USA have a new form of entertainment. A strange game between online players and the police overflows into the real world.

During the game, streamed live over the internet, one player is chosen and the others falsely report him to the police. Then they wait… Within a short time, the unsuspecting victim’s house is infiltrated by an armed SWAT team. All of this is broadcast live. The number of such cases is on the rise and officials are powerless. This vivid short film skillfully combines real shots from the streamed games in which the police were involved, 911 calls and the testimony of victims of this modern entertainment, all interspersed with fascinating animation of the gaming “landscape”.
