Death in the digital age reminds us of how technology has become an inseparable part of our lives. We are "digital beings" in a virtual reality with online presence and memories in a hard drive. But when death arrives, what do we leave behind? Is it possible that our “footsteps” and “digital traces” can be actually deleted or do they exist online forever? This documentary, through Digital Death and Digital Suicide, explores our lack of digital awareness and its implications in our lives.
