Programme Synopsis

My Cyber World addresses youth's addiction to the internet-cyber culture. In this time where social media dangerously alters our ways of social interaction , online gaming replaces physical sports, how do we find balance between the virtual and the real world? Nolly, a 15 year old teenager from a well-to-do family, had always topped her class. When she chanced upon Sapphire 13, the latest and coolest computer game, things around her seemingly started to take a turn for the worst. Her compulsive obsession with Sapphire 13 had her distanced from friends and family. Problems of suffering school grades, losing friends were soon to follow. The situation worsened when she found out that her parents were getting a divorce. Overwhelmed by all these misfortunate happenings, she went into a state of self-denial by shunning everyone, including her closest best friend, Betty. Nolly's world continued to revolve around her cyber battles in Sapphire 13, a virtual world where she escaped into. Finally one day, a phone call from the school principal. Nolly will be expelled as she has failed all the subjects in her year-end examination.
