In the near-future, Max can't decide whether or not she wants to renew her membership for her "Friendbuddy," a digital service that provides companionship to most. Alice, her Friendbuddy, sees herself as a true friend to Max, and can't imagine why she would ever want to live without her. Max, on the other hand, can't imagine that Alice could ever truly be a friend to her at all.
