Simón (González) is a gifted IT specialist with an exceptional brain capable of creating the most complex algorithms, but his social skills are almost non-existent.  However, despite all his anxieties, Simon joins a dating app and that’s where he meets Irina, whether it’s his inexperience in love or her brutal attractiveness, he falls head over heels in love and into a complex and dangerous world he could never have imagined.
