About the film:
Official Selection of the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival. Ghosted by her hunky twenty-something lover, Claire, a middle-aged professor and single mom, creates a fake Facebook profile to do a little undetected online snooping. But when her 24-year-old avatar “Clara” is friended by her ex’s equally attractive roommate, superficial correspondence quickly escalates towards intense intimacy and uncontrollable obsession.
“a Russian nesting doll of intentions, betrayals, and self-delusions…a very complex, ambitious piece of storytelling”
—Brian Tallerico for Roger Ebert
