Why is MINECRAFT such a success? Where is the fascination in playing survival in a world made of blocks? In correlation to Lars von Trier's MELANCHOLIA, this film discusses the struggle of the modern lifestyle, where the permanent thread of nature is no more existent. Do survival games provide a new form of an archaic longing for danger? In the end you'll have to decide for yourself, if fleeing into a generated game world is the best choice, or not.
