Documentary

When well-known Syrian blogger Amina Arraf - purportedly kidnapped by local authorities during the Arab Spring - was revealed to be an elaborate hoax persona, an entire international community realized it had been catfished. But the betrayal cut deepest for Canadian activist Sandra Bagaria, who had been involved in an online relationship with Amina. Playing out like a detective story, this documentary reconstructs this astounding tale of global deceit from Sandra's perspective. As she crosses the globe in search of answers, questioning journalists, activists, and intelligence agencies, she prepares for a face-to-face confrontation with Amina's true creator.
