WIFI, 3G, 4G, DECT, we live in a permanent bath of electromagnetic artificial waves. Should we worry about it?
Alerted by a friend who found herself unable to pursue any activity, director Marc Khanne travelled in France for three years to meet these people who become "electrohypersensitive". Having to face all kinds of symptoms, they need to shut themselves up, or move houses and sometimes leave their family and work. In front of this unfamiliar and controversial phenomenon, Marc Khanne chose a simple and human approach: a series of portraits and accounts of an undeniable suffering, that gives a troubling reality to this invisible pollution, and can't leave the viewer indifferent.
