Summer Vacation: No Internet, No Cell Phones, Huge Problem
Three youths are forced to endure an entire summer without internet or cell phones. Instead they're forced to go outside and find things to do. They're sure they'll die of boredom, but luckily they befriend a boy who has the knack of keeping the days entertaining, if not dangerous. More
Three months without access to internet or cell phones. This is an inconvenience for some; for sisters Cece and Sophie it’s a tragedy. Had the girls accidentally gone to school in pajamas on the same day their diaries went viral they would have been less distraught.
Out of unbearable boredom the girls wander into the nearby woods with the neighbor boy Daniel who suffers the same technological plight. Amidst the undergrowth they stumble across a gruff looking boy named Harry. Unfamiliar with the concept of boredom, and never one to let rules dictate his actions, Harry offers to solve their problem by splicing into the services at his own house nearby. Agreeing to the scheme, the three suburbanites are quickly unnerved as Harry’s fast-pace, reckless ways clash with their own sheltered and orderly existence. Try as they might, Cece, Sophie, and Daniel can never quite conform themselves to the notion that riding bikes, building tree houses, going to the library, protesting at City Hall, catching snakes, and fishing are cool things to do, let alone necessary to get internet to their homes. Along with Harry’s other questionable talents that always seem to have them on the verge of trouble, the suburbanites often think twice about their rash decision. But eventually the three of them lighten up, and they have more fun trying to regain the technology than actually accomplishing the task itself.
It seems the whole summer will pass in this hectic tranquility until the day the kids witness a man from their neighborhood burying something suspicious in the forest. After Harry convinces them to do some late night spying, they’re spotted by the man, and they soon find themselves the next target of this giant brute they call the Grave Digger. Their only hope of escape is to use the old frontier skills Harry taught them; but even those may not be enough to save them.
