China is the first country to label “Internet addiction” a clinical disorder, claiming it is the number one public health threat to its teenage population. In Web Junkie, directors Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia take us inside a Beijing rehab center, run like a military boot camp, to follow three internet-addicted teens sent there against their will. The result is an intimate and fascinating look at this 21st century problem that asks: can these kids be "cured?"
