On our Instagram or Facebook pages, we show only the best part of ourselves, the “beautiful” part of our lives. We hide in this fake. We are so immersed in the process of creating our ideal virtual personality that we forget about real life. We forget the simple truth that beauty is inside.
The film subtilely focuses on a social issue that has global reach: how we perceive and judge ourselves and the others in a world dominated by social media.
