Nick Chambers (Elijah Wood) is the naïve, obsessive webmaster of a fan site dedicated to Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey), the “it girl” of the moment. Both are in Austin at present — she is promoting her latest film, and Nick is streaming the Q&A from his hotel room. Winner of an online contest, he is supposed to have dinner with her later that night... until he gets the fateful call. Chord, a man presenting himself as Goddard’s manager, gives him the awful news: she has cancelled all plans. But he offers an alternative: uploading an array of unbelievable spying tools on his computer, Chord informs Nick that Goddard will be making her way back to the very hotel he is staying in. Better yet, it turns out he can see her room across from his window! As Nick follows Chord’s instructions and starts spying on his favourite star, it becomes clear that the man at the other end of the line isn’t who he says he is. And with that realization comes another, more terrifying one: Nick is already trapped, a puppet in a sinister, voyeuristic plot he will have no choice but to see through the end.
