Internet Story (working title) is a claustrophobic thriller about internet fame, isolation and anonymity.
It tells the story of Kim - an ex-YouTube star whose agoraphobia keeps her shut inside with only the online world for company. When her close friend Martin goes missing on a seemingly-innocent online Treasure Hunt, Kim’s attempts to track him down reawaken the dark forces of the Internet that she has hidden from for years.
