As part of her theory research, a psychologist studies an aspiring social media star’s attempts to achieve online fame.
In a world that exists online, Subject A’s desire to capture and project an "epic" life destroys her ability to maintain relationships and manage her emotions. In the midst of Subject A's increasing social media addiction, her psychologist aims to develop a deeper understanding of her working theory, coined “Digital Narcissism Syndrome" (DNS). Realizing that Subject A is resistant to treatment, the psychologist hires a production team to follow her patient so that resources can be developed to save others from spiralling into DNS. INFLUENCER follows Subject A as she battles against the disasters of her reality in contrast to the perfection of her virtual self.
