Netflix’s latest young-adult drama, Kiss Me First, follows a young woman who recently lost her mother and has been left adrift in London. Her only solace is her retreat into a vibrant and real virtual world. Her increasing involvement with other members of this world—both online and in real life—open up a social dimension that gives her life new verve and meaning.

However, danger and deception lurk in the virtual world as behind the veil of anonymity someone is manipulating the behaviors of the members with deadly consequences.
