Sometime in the near future, a man named Arthur is having a birthday party surrounded by all his well-wishing friends. However, we soon find out that these characters exist only in the virtual world, via a new technology called ‘Best Friend’. When Arthur accidentally destroys his remaining ‘Best Friend’ capsules, he must venture out into the dangerous cityscape to find more, recover his companions, and salvage his birthday. Told with a great sense of worldbuilding, this animated French short confronts the dangers of technology and internet addiction head-on whilst also telling a thrilling, and often scary, tale of the lengths we go to tackle loneliness.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
