Everything seems to be going great between Nev and Meg as they continue to build an online relationship through Facebook, but when Nev and two of his filmmaker friends begin finding evidence that Meg might not be who she says she is, he will be caught in an intricate web of lies and deceit leading up to a shocking reveal! In a time when social networking and online activity are at their peak, a personal documentary like CATFISH strikes the hardest, and becomes more unnerving than any amount of violence and gore. CATFISH allows the viewer intimate access into Nev's daily life as he and his friends continue to discover just how deep and twisted his fantasy relationship had become as it is unfolding on screen. The extreme moments of tension and utter disbelief as the group grows closer to the truth are enough to make your stomach drop and heart race. Nev's experience forces the viewer to confront the reality of online interaction, and closely consider the effect that shifting identities and false fronts can create while we attempt to promote ourselves in the best light possible. CATFISH is the next step in reality filmmaking, and should serve as a terrifying reminder for unsuspecting Internet users.
