Agree with Bob.

You can also build this in HTML5 and CSS.

But not in documents, either InDesign or PDF or EPUB.

There is a way to do this that may suit you. Produce an Interactive PDF with a hyperlink to an InDesign Publish Online document (and that document can include a link back to the PDF) and publish the first document to a third party site such as PaperTurn.

Here's a link to one I produced that quite complex and even includes a YouTube video:
