This is how it goes
In a world of gaming, vlogging and instant messaging, the online and offline worlds of four teenagers collide. Especially when they’re exposed to a darker side of the internet… Inspired by the true online experiences of 120 students, Cookies goes on an extraordinary digital journey. It questions the consequences of cyber bullying. Also when the line is crossed and what happens when it is.
