Television drama about reality TV, played by seven graduation students at the Maastricht Theatre School. Under the motto 'you don't know what you're seeing', the film shows in a realistic way how the boundaries of decency are continually extended in the race for the ratings. TV programmes are increasingly forcing their way into the private lives of people who believe that TV is a miracle cure for their own or other people's problems. Hardly any subject is shunned. The shrewd programme makers usually get what they want. It remains to be seen whether the participants do too.
