Mike, a struggling artist from Pensacola, Florida, fell in love online with a beautiful redhead named Caroline over a year and a half ago. But as their connection grew, so did Mike's suspicions, since they live in the same city and Caroline has continually evaded his attempts to meet. Strangely, Caroline often makes her presence known by sending Mike pictures of the exterior of his workplace and has even left a note on his car when it was parked in front of his house. Regardless, Mike continues to grow more invested in his relationship with Caroline, especially when he learned that she was diagnosed with colon cancer and needs his support. Mike can't tear himself away from this intensely bizarre love affair, but does wonder if he's being preyed upon by a stalking catfish. Is Caroline an imposter -- or is she the real love of his life and just afraid her illness will come between them?
