Be Prepared

Be Prepared

The thriller plays out in the teenage world of the internet and social media era. Two groups of boys from different social classes, representing two different value systems confront each other as a result of a risky decision taken by adults. What was to be a lesson in responsibility and tolerance is transformed into a tough battle for leadership. On the one hand is faith in noble ideals and on the other hand, the brutal law of the jungle. Young people, isolated from the outside world, sequestered in a tension-filled group, reveal their true, shocking natures.

The film marks another step – after Suicide Room – on the journey to discover the truth about what influences the choices young people make today. A contemporary attempt at posing dramatic questions in the spirit of the famous Lord of the Flies, in which the heroes are poised on the brink of adulthood.
