The film makes clear that by expanding the pool of potential mates beyond anything possible in real life, online dating has at last fulfilled the truth captured in my late grandmother's favorite saying: "Every pot has its cover." But at a price.The fear that permeates online dating has a special character, precisely because of the anonymity, concealment, and outright deception that are infinitely easier to accomplish on the internet than in the realm those who live online describe as "RL." Yes, you guessed it: Kim, who packed a wedding gown and flew to Prague to marry a man she had never spoken to.
Ryan, who Googled “gay” and received a big surprise.
Jonas, whose real life was changed forever when he entered the world of Second Life.
Only the last segment takes place in Second Life, but perhaps because that environment permits such extravagant alteration of identity, it stands out as the most important to the film.
It details the love story of Jonas Tancred (a middle-aged Swede who retires to a rural island with his mother, then enters Second Life as the avatar Bara Jonson, a nightclub owner and popular SL musician), and Beth Hayes, aka Nickel Borrelly (a younger American woman who advises Bara on his career, "marries" him in Second Life—and eventually has a child with him in RL).
