Amanda and Alberto are 16, like every other young person today, they live with a telephone in their hands, or in front of a screen monitor: YouTube, webcams and smartphones are the vehicles and witnesses to their experiences. In order to find out how to use a tampon, Amanda doesn’t ask her mother or a friend, she finds a tutorial online. Alberto isn’t looking for a girlfriend but turns on the computer and visits porn websites. During a school outing, they meet and their melancholy collide. A sweet and clean relationship starts between them, fed by video calls and text messages. While Amanda realizes Alberto prefers virtual sex, she decides to get along and lets herself be filmed – but in the era of internet, one click is all it takes to reveal a secret.
An interesting experiment of interaction between web and cinema, Aquadro reflects on the negative consequences technology may be having on teenagers.
