Back to contemplation

We live in a digital world. We google, email and text, and with every “bing,” our brains are rewarded with dopamine. We need to be online – always and everywhere. But what happens when we switch off? Five men and women dare to conduct an analog experiment. On the Greek island of Lipsi, Mario, Svenja, Heino, Jasminka and Caro go through a digital detox and quickly discover that the detox brings out feelings and thoughts that previously had no place.
