Zana and Tina, two young girls, are university students and share a living room together. They are hooked on social media and spend most of their time connected to a mobile phone. Zana, also makes special photo sessions to create the virtual life she desperately seeks . Even the people she is related to and who she believes are important, rich and successful, in reality are also fictitious and non-existent people. Zana even organizes teaching sessions on how to create a virtual image of a person. She subordinates Tina and draws her into her world. Tina is in a dilemma. Although she tries to follow Zana, she also tries to learn and acquire knowledge in the field of science that she studies. When Zana's fantasies about virtual life and social media cross the boundaries, Tina opposes her by letting her know that she is there to learn and become someone with knowledge. She warns Zana that with her way of thinking, they will not be able to continue together. The gap between the two friends deepens even more when Tina falls from the exam and threatens Zana that their paths will eventually be divided. Zana continues to create her fake personality and dream that her virtual life will one day become reality. She even makes a serious connection with such a fictional person. But when she meets the 'dream person', she is disappointed because she realizes that that person is an old man whom she has hired as a photographer for her photo sessions. Zana, desperate, returns to the apartment and decides to turn her life around. She continues painting her self-portrait that was left unfinished.
