ABOUT THE FILM
Anyone on the Internet is susceptible to the devastating repercussions of online harassment – particularly women. As the next civil rights frontier goes digital, this chilling dispatch from the dark side of the Web exposes the shocking proliferation of predatory cyberstalking, and a justice system reluctant to confront misogynistic digital abuse as a prosecutable crime. Highlighting three besieged women valiantly fighting back against the Internet’s most malevolent forces – invasion of privacy, impersonation and revenge porn – this infuriating investigation provides an unflinching look at how anonymous online threats can quickly escalate into physical danger, and what can be done to stop it.
