17 year olds Carter and Shannon start dating.
What they don’t know is that the other each has dubious reasons for seeking a relationship.
Carter becomes obsessed with the death of Shannon’s older brother (Jonathan) because he needs a distraction from his parents’ crumbling marriage. He uses her to dig for information to solve Jonathan’s murder.
Shannon pursues Carter because she’s desperate for a fake boyfriend. Shannon knows Jonathan’s secret since she did the same thing as him; catfishing people by pranking them and having different fake profiles on FindLoveNow.com. They pretended to like their online victims before dumping them in person. And now Shannon is scared because she humiliated the wrong man- one of the detectives investigating Jonathan’s murder.
