Caught in the Net (V síti) / On the Edge. Out-of-Competition Program
Czech Republic
, 105 mins.

Three fearless adult actresses agreed to participate in a socio-psychological experiment – under the guise of 12-year-old girls, they chatted in the Net with unknown men who hardly managed to hide their sexual intentions, secretly and openly masturbated, sent images of their genitals, sometimes showed outright psychological violence and blackmailed the girls. During 10 days of filming, 2,458 people contacted the heroines, who later had 21 personal meetings with adult men. Those promised to treat the girls with chocolate and explained the details of the female anatomy. At the end of the shooting, the footage was handed over to the police, who initiated criminal proceedings.
