The Nether is a fully immersive virtual reality that comes to replace the internet. This technological wonder has taken over the real world to the point where most people work and study there. Apart from various business opportunities, the Nether also provides endless possibilities for fulfilling any dreams and desires, even the most disturbing ones – just log in and choose an identity. The play investigates the borders of the permissible in the virtual world. It focuses in particular on the ethical correctness of a relationship between two consenting adults in their 50s, one of whom, however, assumes the virtual identity of a child.
