Wendy, a 17 year old plus sized, body positive makeup artist with her own YouTube channel, is having her life exploded by internet trolls - represented by a Chorus of Neckbeards.  Jess discovers that her long term boyfriend Chad spends his time harassing young women on the internet to "blow off steam". From here, the two stories converge in an examination of the current era of internet harassment, toxic masculinity, and the cycle of abuse towards women in America.
