Clementine is an anxiety-prone loner. Working on her doctorate, she is convinced that social media can be successfully utilized to catch killers. She sets out to prove her thesis by anonymously infiltrating the very group that intends to do so. A dangerous venture, she must succeed before her own dark past overtakes her.
