    • Synopsis
    • The Internet brought necessary tools to build up a new world and so we did it. Not only in a manner of speaking. Since its arrival, we built, brick by brick, an abstract county, that is now a shelter for profiles, edited lives and lots of our lifetime. The loyal inhabitants of this land started to get apart from reality and to sustain a self-edited life. In this new pseudo-reality, a new profession is distinguished: digital influencers. Faces that represent desires, ambitions, and carv ways to a successful, wealthy and glamorous living. Aiming to observe and understand the path we are taking as humans, a group of journalists penetrates this universe with their own creature. An experimental documentary that introduces us a digital-influencer-to-be and hidden answers: Where are we exactly? Which reality are we spending our time with? Are we inhabitants of a real or virtual world? Which are the consequences to the obsession with virtual success?
