Shot entirely in a single take with no cuts, this visually audacious cinematic undertaking forces us to reconsider the dangers of online relationships. Lili is a young woman in Mexico City who is excited about her date with a man she met on the Internet. She is at once nervous but deeply in love with the idea of this lover, Eduardo. When the two finally meet, there seems to be scorching chemistry between them. He seems to be a handsome gentleman interested in a relationship with her. But there’s one thing that doesn’t sit right with Lili. Eduardo lied to her, and she doesn’t know why. Finding out might cause her more than just a heartbreak.
