Synopsis

“Leave Britney alone!” This sentence, shouted out on YouTube by a wounded, irate boy seeing the rebuke his idol Britney Spears was receiving, became a slogan that spread over the supersonic speed network. The object of all kinds of tributes, parodies and remixes, it is one of the most famous viral phenomena on Internet and it made its author, Chris Crocker, a prominent network figure. A famous 2.0, addicted to displaying snippets of his life in public, whose complex personality is the object of a study in this documentary, an analysis of a totally new model of unreal and potentially combustible fame.
