BOLD is an “alter”, who anonymously posts nudes and performs lascivious acts on the Internet. Bold suffers an existential crisis and confronts his daddy issues. With the help of his talking cat and hallucinogenic drugs, BOLD takes a deep dive into the chaos of the Internet. Seeking refuge in the arms of strange men, BOLD masturbates his way to true happiness. Caught in this tangle of tech and social media, he wonders to his cat about his place in the world. If he spreads his wings, can he fly?
