Clara is spending the evening babysitting for a wealthy family. They’ve even got a harp in their living room! Naturally she snaps a picture right away and sends it to her bae Patrick via WhatsApp. When she posts another slightly enhanced image on Instagram, Clara’s thrilled to gain a new follower: ny4rl47ho73p. Alas, the internet stranger inserts himself into her world in deeply disturbing fashion in this rigorously staged smartphone thriller.
