As part of her theory research, Dr. Elizabeth Burr, MD, PhD Psych., studies an aspiring social media star’s attempts to achieve online fame. In a world that exists online, Subject A’s desire to capture and project an "epic" life destroys her ability to manager her emotions and maintain healthy relationships. In the midst of Subject A's increasing social media addiction, her psychologist aims to develop a deeper understanding of her working theory, coined “Digital Narcissism Syndrome" (DNS), with a focus on individuals living in remote mountain towns. Realizing that Subject A is resistant to treatment, Dr. Burr works passionately to develop resources that can save others from spiralling into DNS.
INFLUENCER follows Subject A as she battles the disasters of her reality in contrast to the perfection of her virtual self.
