When Dennis Sullivan wins an Academy Award for his screenplay about his friend who was driven to suicide after being bullied for being gay, he names the real-life bully on national television: Ethan Rice. Dennis’ accusation and the viral internet feud between Dennis and Ethan that follows leads to chaos in both of their lives, as their feud becomes obsessive and destructive, leaving them to wonder if we can ever really leave the past behind us.
