In order to achieve his goal, Ben switches jobs and starts working at home from the internet. He gets his groceries delivered to his door and even starts cyber-dating women and inviting them to his apartment. One day, a friend comes over to visit Ben, as he tries to convince him to drop his hermit status, Ben’s groceries are delivered by a girl that will challenge his views on love and new lifestyle.

Mars Horodyski’s first feature is a micro-budget interpretation of the hardships of lost love and breakups. Ben’s life shifts from average guy into cyberspace dependent, letting the viewer realize how far we can be governed by computers and how little human contact is needed to get by in today’s world.- Andres Castillo
