Draw dropping stranger-than-fiction cases of online friendships that turned ugly. Each film in the series tells us two to three shocking cases of online deceit with narrative storylines with intimate and in-depth access to key players in each case: The girl with the prosthetic penis who set up a fake Facebook profile pretending to be a man. She sent her victim a friend request telling her that he knew about her through a mutual friend. Two teenage girls used Facebook as part of a plot to kidnap three babies. A teenage boy persuaded his online friend to stab him to death in order to pass a fictitious initiation test for the British secret service. Each one is a glimpse into how the internet has changed us our relationships, our desires, and our darkest fantasies.
