Kira, a bright and stylish young woman living with Down’s syndrome, compares herself to social media influencer, Chantal. Her life appears to be everything that Kira’s isn’t. 

After Kira is met with discrimination by prospective employers while interviewing for jobs via Zoom, she is ill-advised by her support worker to change her online profile to get her foot in the door. 

When Kira goes against her gut and then gains success, this only feeds into her negative self-image. She reaches out to social media influencer Chantal, seeking advice on how to lose weight, however Kira finds out that Chantal is not what she appears to be.
