A young office manager falls in love with a hip instagirl whom he has been following virtually for some time. After chatting online, they decide to meet in a nightclub. He wants to get to know her “true self” but discovers only cynical beauty. The film playfully links the idolization of social media icons and narcissistic default settings such as selfies with the question of how values and ideals change under the influence of contemporary media.
