A Finnish clerk who lacks confidence gets a special gift, young Polish users explore Chatroulette and a translator working from home changes her life on the New Year’s Eve. The DARK WHITE segment of shnit’s international competition features films from Finland, Poland, France, the Netherlands, and Canada.


One night a man and a woman meet on a chat app. With no past to share, they might never see each other again. They say that the Internet is the last stronghold of true freedom. There’s only one rule: if I am bored, I can switch you off. Can true feelings exist online?
