Summary: The 19th century philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard, maintained that the individual is solely responsible for giving his/ her own life meaning, in spite of many existential obstacles like despair, angst, absurdity, alienation and boredom. The phenomenon of social networking, it seems, is here to answer the old existentialist's call. To find reasons to love - ourselves and others. The Film explores online identity formation as it sifts through six lives, to tell a story of this new self we're forming and of old selves we still inhabit.
