On her way home, a girl sees in her dating app that she is matched with a creep that she swiped away earlier on. She is afraid the man will come dangerously close.

An oppressive sense of horror brings the contemporary and realistically depicted subject of cyberstalking uncomfortably close. It is evening in a big city. On her way home, a young woman is playing with her dating app, when suddenly something strange happens. She is matched with a creep she swiped away earlier on! This is just impossible. But when she receives another picture of him, things seem to get out of hand. Fear seizes her by the throat. Shot on location in New York, which strongly contributes to the atmosphere.
