Four couples from five continents experience the very same complications with the all present phones: a seasoned film star in Hollywood/USA and her cyber date in Zurich/Switzerland; two teenagers in the countryside of Thailand, two inmates in South-Africa, and an ex-astronaut with a scientist in Sidney/Australia - phone (ab-)use is as demographically and culturally spread out. 'PhonY'-life seems to be at its happiest when all devices worldwide are loaded by electricity - thus become unusable. Life on Earth breaks down. The consequences are dramatic. Everybody has to rethink their activities. Human-life is at a dying breed - if it weren't the Australian scientist finding the solution in her lover's space-past. Is she able to bring the world back to 'PhonY'-life? Written by Daniela Kastelan
