Next Level Parzival

4F / 6M, for ages 14 +

Seven kids get together for a LAN party: Lukas and his sister Annika, the couple Sylvio and Chloe, Oktay, who would love to be with Annika, and Hedda, whose friend Yannick has been acting strange ever since they slept together. The game they log into is called "Artus" and as usual they direct their avatars - Ginover, Ither, Gawain etc. - through a digital fantasy world in a quest for the grail. But this time, something goes wrong. A character appears out of nowhere that isn't part of the program. Percival, who wants to be a knight like the others, but without earning the necessary " points of experience". Accordingly, his initial behavior is anarchic and brutal. But Percival is a quick study and soon exceeds his opponents in virtue. And something else is different than usual. The avatars develop a spooky life of their own, and so, out of the blue, Lukas comes back from the tournament with real injuries.....
