What happens in a family when the world-wide-web doesn’t work?

It’s the school holidays. Mum and dad have to work and grandma and grandpa are looking after Tiffany and her older brother and sister. Then it happens! The internet breaks down. All over the world! It was grandma, who broke it. By accident of course! She sat at the computer and went click-click a few times. What now? What do you do when there is no internet? No music and films to stream? No apps and satnav? No contact to the outside world? However in the attic there is grandpa’s old transistor radio and father’s guitar, and so the family can enjoy something together even without the internet!

The realization of this production is supported by the Sparkassenstiftung Erfurt.
