FULL SYNOPSIS

Drawn into a menacing underground world of the New Orleans elite while searching for her missing sister, Muriel ([[Performer~P230466~Shalom Harlow~shalomharlow]]), Amelia ([[Performer~P272311~Liane Balaban~lianebalaban]]) is aided in her investigation by ex-CIA agent Bill ([[Performer~P76410~Clarence Williams III~clarencewilliamsiii]]) in this effort from [[Feature~V134080~Nadja~nadja]] director [[Performer~P79406~Michael Almereyda~michaelalmereyda]]. Soon discovering mysterious webcam footage on Muriel's laptop computer that will seemingly aid them in finding Amelia's sister, the duo is confronted with shifting identities in a scene where no one is quite who they appear to be on the surface. An obscure and disturbing study in the nature of avatars in the age of technological isolation, [[Performer~P79406~Almereyda~michaelalmereyda]]'s haunting drama soon leads Amelia and Bill into a complex web buried deep in the underground of a mysterious and sometimes menacing city. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
