Incel

Incel

Sam is a reclusive, anti-social young man who has been absorbed into a toxic web forum. He finds solace with those who share the same self-described title as him - Incel (short for 'involuntarily celibate'). When his countless real-life efforts at love fail, this anonymous community pushes him over the edge to a dangerous conclusion.
