Although Facebook may’ve replaced Second Life as the online social hub du jour, SL is still a virtual home for hundreds of thousands of users, represented through avatars. Director Jason Spingarn-Koff joins the community by creating his own avatar and meets scores of individuals whose real lives have been greatly affected by their indulgence in this virtual world. Whether it’s a couple that falls in love via Second Life and decides to take their relationship into their first lives, or a man who chooses to roam the virtual landscape as an 11-year-old girl, the stories shed light on our relationships with reality and fantasy and our temptation to blur the line between.
