Based on a true story, dark play ensnares the audience in a psychosexual cyberspace drama between two adolescent boys. When Adam looks to make a real connection online, he meets Nick, who brings him into an intricate online world filled with flirtatious girls, sex-crazed jocks and convert government agents. But when the game becomes more important than reality, Nick creates the ultimate blurring of fantasy and truth where the consequences are all too real.
