Set sometime in our future, a group of young adults believe they'll have a couple of hours out of camera and the associated computer analysis that allows their parents, lecturers and government to monitor their every move. Although 21 years of age, they've never experienced this privacy. A concerned lecturer decides to secretly monitor their activities.
The high jinks that occur end up having serious consequences. When all appears lost, our strong brave goody two shoes heroine shows brilliance, and daring to win through against all the odds and save everyone.
