Modern societies are wrestling with many inequities, including individuals becoming more and more excluded and isolated in their life. This has become a large enough problem for those in their twenties that it has evolved a name: Quarter Life Crisis. Overwhelmed by too many options and social media comparisons, Generation Yers are often misunderstood as lazy or entitled. What’s at the core of this issue and why are today’s quarter-lifers more anxious and depressed than ever before? Troubled twenty five year old filmmaker Sonia Suvagau and her boyfriend set out to discover why the Quarter-Life Crisis is plaguing their generation.
