A lonely boy, called Radi, who has been removed from online society, knocks at his old classmates window early in the morning. He asks for help, because he cannot live like this any longer, being deleted. Together they walk to his old place of peace, a hut in the forrest. There, his old classmate Max is able to convince him that he doensn´t need the fictional online world to be alive. Radi burries his Laptop as a sign of acceptance. Later, they walk away into the morning sun.
