Description

A woman must emerge from the virtual world she's created to confront her flesh-and-blood past and family. In this ominous, numbed-out tale, our heroine spends her 1980s childhood staring at the television to escape the terrors of her suburban home. After winning a modeling competition - she has the blankest stare - she moves to Paris and dedicates herself to becoming a placid image onto which anything can be projected. Earning enough as a model to retire in her twenties, she retreats from the world, cultivating her existence through her virtual-reality avatar. But then her mother gets sick and she is forced to leave her cocoon without the mask of her perfect, digital self.
