The conversations may be virtual, but the laughs are real!

The digital age can be so awkward. Navigate the hilarious ups and downs of living with technology in this delightful collection of scenes.  From the perils of online dating to the complicated mess that can come from a simple coffee order, from a wild and wacky internet news broadcast to a secret spy mission gone wrong–we’ll be showcasing all the complications and chaos that arises when technology keeps us apart.
