Synopsis

A woman jumps off the bridge, her autist son pressed to her bosom. Two passing guys save them. Society condemns the suicidal woman, and she faces up to 20 years in prison. A TV star Elena stands in defense of the woman what shortly turns into her own public suicide - society cancels her for impiety. Trying to brush it off as a meager misunderstanding, soon Elena faces the harsh reality: her long-going TV show is terminated, her girlfriend leaves her, and she becomes the focus of hate speeches. Ahead of this cancellation movement is Lilia, a 23-year-old Elena’s PA. Coming from a tough background, she’s made her life through vlogging and dreams to make it big. While Elena’s life goes downhill, Lilia is becoming more famous by minutes. When Elena is attacked and ends up in a hospital, only then Lilia realises that things have slipped out of her hands. Scared, she reconsiders and decides to un-cancel Elena but that seems to be a tough one.
