There are only 100 days before Dominik will leave the country’s finest school. But 100 days can be a very long time, especially when you’re expected to function while submitting to the pecking order and other social demands at an elite school. Social competence is not one of Dominik's strong points. A series of humiliating experiences with a fellow-student nudges Dominik’s world dangerously off kilter and, when he discovers the comments his classmates have posted about him on a social network web site, it puts an end to his self-confidence, motivation and concentration. Unable to bear the thought of school any more, Dominik withdraws, drifting into a virtual world where there are no hateful classmates. Online he pseudonymously meets Sylwia who tells him she plans to commit suicide. She also introduces him to her friends in the "suicide room," a chat room for people with suicidal tendencies.
Dir. Jan Komasa, 2011, Poland, 110 mins. in Polish with English subtitles
