When Nils’s ex-girlfriend dies suddenly, she drags him back into a toxic online roleplay scene he swore he’d never return to. He’d been doing okay sticking to his seven-year plan for getting over their breakup – but now, everyone either blames him or expects him to have answers, and he’s getting nasty anonymous messages that might be coming from beyond the grave. A nuanced examination of identity, trauma, assault, grief, and mental health through an online world. Content notes include: suicide and child sexual abuse are discussed but not depicted, themes include transphobia and online bullying.
