Aline saves a puppy from loneliness at the animal shelter and proceeds to stuff him full of biscuits in a somewhat impetuous display of maternal care; shortly afterwards the overburdened animal vomits in the subway. This, in turn, is filmed by a boy who shares it on video platforms in the hope of becoming the “King of Likes”. Akin to a random spark, he sets off a blazing social media fire: Aline soon finds herself the subject of outrageous charges that are the result of viral smear campaigns. Her job will soon be on the line. A spiral of horror unfolds, which focuses its primary attention on the real-life effects of a virtual space, the development of which has gotten out of hand, and in which everyone feels emboldened to chime in with their two cents on any matter without having to fear personal consequences; as a result, the real life of a largely innocent individual is destroyed. In a series of trashy comic scenes Andrei Hutuleacs succeeds brilliantly in transforming the fate of one woman into a reflection of a deep-seated social crisis.
