What is the relationship between the version of you that lives online and the one that walks around the earth?
We think of our online selves as shadow versions of us which we can control. But in this age when facts are malleable, something strange is happening: our online selves are sometimes eclipsing our real ones, even when we don't want them to. We look at a post fact city where the blurred line between real and online noise has had life or death stakes for dozens of teenagers. And we follow the tragic case of a young teenage boy named Brandon, who was killed because of a Facebook post.
