Thirteen-year-old Kayla Day always has her phone in hand, hoping to find connections online that might make up for those she’s unable to forge in everyday life. She makes aspirational YouTube videos for a mostly non-existent audience of teenagers dealing with loneliness, anxiety, invisibility and outright rejection – but is unable to apply her wisdom to her own life and real situations. In the final week of a disastrous school year—and with high school looming on the horizon—Kayla struggles to bridge the gap between how she perceives herself and who she believes she should be.
