Synopsis

Young-Girl is astounded to discover that a photo of her face has gone viral. She doesn’t know who created the meme or why. Accompanying her rapidly spreading picture is a bafflingly nondescript slogan that simply reads: FACE. Estranged from her own image and subject to an vicious undertow of online speculation, Young-Girl records a response video in an attempt to confront the meme and take control of her narrative in this darkly funny play about gender, identity and anonymous cruelty.  (summerworks.ca)
