In this darkly hilarious horror film, Femke Boot (Herbers) is a columnist and writer who suffers from endless abusive posts and death threats on social media. Femke is obsessed with this hateful news and spends every moment checking her twitter feed. This obsession devours her life and her work suffers because she fails to write her columns and novel. One day all of their pent-up anger and frustration explodes in a moment of shocking and unexpected violence.
This brutal and bloody act inspired Femke to write again. However, the blockade of her writer is returning and with it her reliance on social media. Femke secretly believes that there is only one solution to her ever-growing frustration. She gives in to her murderous rage and alternates killing and mutilating her social media tormentors with writing her debut novel.
But how long can she continue this double life? Can she hide her nightly murders from her teenage daughter and new boyfriend, horror writer Steven Dood? And is it really the best solution to fight hate with hate?
