One Click

Narrated by Elle Fanning, One Click explores how a single click on the internet can change your life forever.

Together with journalist Jessica Wapnes, Elle Fanning traces the history of DNP and asks, why (despite the perils) have so many turned to DNP and what does it say about the health of our society?
