Generation 56k Plot
According to the official synopsis of Generation 56k, we will see the story progressing in two timelines. One in the nostalgic late 1990s and one in the present time. Generation 56k tells the story of three friends. Daniel, Luca, and Sandro grew up together as teens in 1998. The time when the internet was booming and changing the world altogether. Around the same time, the kids discover why their parents asked them to stay away from the internet and made a business out of it by taping porn videos and selling them. Fast forward into the future, the same three friends have their own dating app, which they clearly state is for only dating purposes.
Daniel using the app, dates someone who doesn’t reveal her face. With that, the show signifies how the internet may sound so beneficial for them during its initial years in the 90s. But now has become such a mess today. With that, Daniel accidentally dates someone who is someone. As he keeps figuring it out, he reconnects with Matilda. A girl he believes he has known for ages. They both enjoy time together and eventually fell for each other as seen in the trailer.
Until they realize they dated each other during his teen years. Now, they have a chance for reconciliation. They both were kids, and probably the internet caused the rift between them as kids. Will the second chance see Daniel and Matilda acknowledging it, or will the past differences kill their newly found love again? All in Generation 56k.
