In the zealous mood for evangelism, how far does one go and who draws the lines in the virtual world? What do you do when the online world becomes more real to you than your offline life?

Natasha Malpani Oswal, Founder and Creative Producer at Boundless Media commented, " Our aim is to tell new-age, experimental stories. We cover topics which are hidden in plain sight through our films and series. Through CANCELLED, we wanted to explore the blurring of our online and offline lives. We all know social media can be dangerous, but we’re still completely addicted to constantly scrolling. CANCELLED is highly entertaining, but also contemporary and relatable. I think Gen Z will strongly resonate with it.”
