'Julian Larnach's In Real Life offers a psychological thriller and cautionary tale about our rapidly changing world where everything is a just a device click away.

'In the not too distant future, Theresa is the CEO of a global digital company and inventor of the Drum, the world's most popular personal device. One evening she argues with her daughter who walks out of their secluded holiday retreat and vanishes without a trace.

'Theresa yearns for answers to her daughter's disappearance, and seeks solace for her grief via social media and online. Desperate to reconnect, she attempts to use technology to bridge the gap between the digital world and real life.'
