La obsesión digital will have something for everyone! Nuria and her family are utterly dependent on technology. Her parents, once a tranquil and loving couple, struggle to balance the demands of their jobs while spending valuable time with their kids. The effects are obvious: Nuria's brother is far deep into the world of virtual technology, and Nuria is addicted to social media.
However, when her grandma’s comes to visit, the family experiences an expected shake up; and their secrets are slowly revealed. Grandma has a plan for the family (plus, they cannot resist her cooking). Before they "accept" the terms and conditions of this new approach to life, they will have to "unplug" from their social media, put their devices in "airplane" mode, while pushing past their addictions to be a family. Can they do it? Can you?
