After being scammed on Airbnb, a young woman finds herself lost in an unfamiliar city. She ends up staying with an old friend, whose motives she can't discern. When she chances upon a strange painting dated with the year 2133, she becomes obsessed with its secretive artist. As the mystery deepens, her suspicions about her old friend grow, and her ties to family back home begin to fray, she watches her life spiralling away from her.
