For over seven years, Ashley has sent dramatically altered photos of herself to her soul mate, Mike, to make her look thinner and more attractive to him. Mike, who appears to be an extraordinarily fit and handsome young man, lives several states away in New Jersey. Saddled by insecurities around her weight and a fear of going out in public, Ashley has become more reliant on her online connection to Mike with each passing year, but has always found an excuse not to meet up with him. Mike has always been there for Ashley, consoling her through the period after her father's sudden death and becoming an intensely positive force in her life. Now Ashley feels ready to come out of hiding to show her true self to Mike. But is he ready to accept the real Ashley? Or is it possible that the love of her life, complete with shiny six-pack abs and blond curls, could be catfishing her right back? Ashley's determined to reveal the truth about herself -- is Mike ready to do the same?
