An online relationship between Montreal-based Sandra and Amina, a Syrian-American living in Damascus, takes a strange turn when Amina’s blog, claiming to represent a lesbian voice, goes silent and it is feared she has been kidnapped. All, however, is not as it seems… Director Sophie Deraspe works closely with Sandra to tell her story and, travelling to Istanbul, Tel Aviv, and Chicago, they unravel together a tale of politics, deceit, and internet dating gone horribly wrong.
