The TV film Necrocam. De dood online is set in the Internet subculture. Four adolescents have a computer club together. They surf, play video games, go to digiparties and communicate by computer. When one of them dies, the others do their best to fulfil his last wish: having a webcam in his coffin as a monument, which registers the decomposition live on the Internet, and enabling the site visitor to speed up or slow down the process with a temperature regulator. With the so-called necrocam, the threesome expects to get thousands of hits a day and see themselves make money without any efforts. But when the unwilling parents, horrified by the morbid idea, oppose them, their plan yet seems to be impracticable.
