Based on an "inspiration package" our team received, Game Over tells the story of the investigation into a mysterious shooting outside Planet Lazer in which four boys were killed. A fifth boy, an eight-year old, is missing. What unfolds is a disturbing exlploration of today's children and the violent entertainment they consume.
