After graduating from high school, the boy is accepted to an American university, but before leaving for his new life, he goes out to have one last epic night of fun with his friends, Ábris, Bandi and Patrik. The guys make provocative videos to post online, trying to get as many views as possible with competitive challenges. They are pushing their limits. The loud and funny foursome is also very popular with the girls. But at a house party, suddenly everything changes; the boys go too far, Gergő sleeps with a girl, Lilla, for a bet. The videos of the party will provoke public outrage on social media and Lilla disappears. Gergő, tormented by his guilty conscience, dives into the Budapest nightlife with his friends in order to find the girl and resolve the night’s unfortunate events.
Produced by Petra Iványi and István Major for Filmteam, FOMO: Fear of Missing Out was co-produced by György Kérpáti for Vertigo Media (which will ensure distribution in Hungarian cinemas in spring 2019) and by Norbert Korom for Ister Film. Filming will run until the end of July. It's worth noting that the film is supported by the Hungarian National Film Fund via its "Incubator" programme dedicated to young filmmakers. The HNFF will also be handling international sales.
