Written in 2017 following a significant decision on net neutrality, this project humorously explores the potential consequences of a non-neutral internet through the lens of a couple visiting a restaurant.

The story unfolds as the couple enters the restaurant and discovers a multitude of hidden fees, paralleling the idea of restricted access and extra charges that could occur in a non-neutral online environment. The satirical nature of the film cleverly highlights the potential pitfalls and frustrations that could arise if the principles of net neutrality were not upheld.
