Tricia's life is turned upside down when she becomes the victim of a cyberstalker named Ben (played by Marc Menard) whom she had met briefly at a conference. The film explores the dark and often dangerous side of the internet, and the mental turmoil of someone caught in an unhealthy obsession.

At the beginning of the film, Tricia is a well-known businesswoman who has just won an important contract for the company she works for. With a high-powered job and a loving husband, Tricia seems to have everything she has ever wanted. However, things quickly take a dark turn when she starts receiving anonymous emails and text messages from a man named Ben. At first, Tricia thinks they are harmless until the messages begin to escalate in intensity and frequency. The cyberstalker invades her personal life, sending her inappropriate photos and videos, and even breaks into her home.

Feeling violated and frightened, Tricia turns to the police for help. She works closely with Detective Norma Franklin (played by Caroline Cave) to try and track down the stalker's identity. However, as the investigation intensifies, Tricia becomes even more fearful for her safety. Her husband begins to worry about her obsessive behaviour and strained relationship with their son.

As Tricia starts to unravel emotionally, her life begins to crumble. Her obsession with finding Ben starts to take over her life, and she becomes increasingly paranoid about the people around her. In the meantime, Ben continues to manipulate and stalk Tricia, playing mind games to further his mission.

The climax of the film comes when Tricia finally discovers Ben's true identity and confronts him in person. The scene is tense and heart-pounding as the two characters face off. Through these final moments, the true nature of Ben's obsession is revealed, and Tricia is left to pick up the pieces of her shattered life.
