When Jim, Eva, Emily and Mo meet William online, they're seduced by his charisma. But William isn't what he seems. He's calculating and manipulative and doesn't have their time for people in the real world. Jim is vulnerable and he has no idea how dangerous his new friendship with William will be...

When Jim confesses he's on anti-depressants, William vows to help Jim off his drugs, and the rest of the group fall in line. What begins as friendly advice becomes twisted and Eva and Mo realise the deadly game William's playing.
