Brief Explanation
The film is based on the "fail video" format. We see clips of real accidents, some painful, others just hilarious. Then, we see a little girl laughing and stuffing pieces of sausage into her mouth before she suddenly chokes. The kid who films calls for his dad, who comes rushing to help. The film is interactive and puts the viewer to the wall with three important questions while the dramatic scene unfolds in the background. Each of your answers affects the narrative of the film, and the girl is only saved if you answer all questions right. The end of the movie becomes even more dramatic if any of the answers are incorrect. The final poster urges you to sign up to learn first aid today. You are then sent to Red Cross' pages where you can sign up to learn first aid.
