The resource challenges the way young people publish images of others without any thought of accountability and explores how these actions can affect the relationships and dynamics within a social group.

The drama is based around a group of 11-14 year old girls who are all friends and all at the same school. Like most young people of their age, technology is very important in their lives, particularly mobile phones, social networking, instant messaging and the like. They rely on these technologies in many aspects of their social life and is their preferred method of communication. Whilst their understanding of the technology that they use is good, their understanding of the consequences and the implications of what they do with the technology is naiive.

The drama attempts to explore not only the technologies themselves but how the various parties feel about the incident and the impact that it has on them.
