Ellen thinks she is falling in love on-line, when in actuality she is spiraling down into the depths of Internet addiction.

Their teenage daughter, Ari, acutely aware of her parents' infidelities, is trying to navigate the world of cyber romance herself as her boyfriend leaves for college.

In the midst of the chaos, technology takes on human form and begins to manipulate this fragile family for its own amusement. A cautionary tale about love, communication, and communication technology.
