Attempts at a successful, heroic profession, to find the source of trouble-free happiness, lead him and the audience to paradoxical conclusions and gaining useful experience. The French film "In Limbo" by Antoine Vivani explores the degree of the Internet’s invasion of everyday life and the consciousness of modern man, the danger, advantages and prospects.
