Following a devastating breakup with an abusive ex, Lilly is trying to pick up the pieces. In an attempt to heal, she takes to the internet to share her pair, posting a deeply personal, and slightly wine-fueled, vlog detailing her experience with abuse as she sobs at the still-fresh memories of her pain. While strangers and friends alike compliment her strength and even share their own stories, a certain someone also finds her video: a sociopath named Tom who gets off on female tears. What follows is a skin crawling and deeply uncomfortable journey into the draining abscess of domestic abuse.
