Recent world statistics show that more than 1000 teenagers died from the “chocking game” in the past 10 years, but this film is about something else.


Sit on your haunches. Breathe deeply as you were a dog. Get up fast. Once you’re on your feet, someone presses hard on your throat. This makes you loose your consciousness. And then you’re dreaming. That is the description of the dangerous thing called "choking game". The film follows a story of an ordinary guy. He goes to school, plays soccer, meets his friends, falls in love. The “choking game" is something he has already forgotten about but today he will play it again.
