Columnist, the

Columnist/writer Femke is flooded with nasty messages and death proverbs on social media. One day she is completely done with it and decides to take revenge…

Successful columnist Femke is flooded every day by (anonymous) nasty messages and death allegations on social media, and mainly coming from the sewer of the internet : Twitter. She becomes addicted to the vicious messages, and finds herself at night, continuously clicking back to the hateful comments before she goes to sleep. Not only is this affecting her inspiration to write her columns, she also needs to finish writing the novel she promised to deliver her publisher. Finally, one day she is completely done with it and the anger ignites fast… The act of violence and revenge eases and inspires her – she writes like never before.
