STORY

Claudia, a 30-year-old woman with an abusive past, lives locked in her apartment. She has a blog where she preaches her hatred towards men, while wearing a mask that covers her identity. Suddenly she finds out that one of her neighbors, Pablo (35 years old), films her and follows her everywhere.
Claudia decides to act, for fear of been victim to this voyeur. She lures him to her apartment where she kidnaps him. Then Claudia applies various punishments to Pablo while she broadcasts everything on her channel, which is joined by millions of female followers who are also mad at men.
As the police investigate Pablo's disappearance, Claudia tries to hide her secret, while sinking into a spiral of revenge that attracts darker people than herself. Eventually, Claudia will understand the consequences of her actions and will try to put a stop to it, but first, she will have to commit the most difficult act of her life.
