One day French filmmaker Armel Hostiou discovers he has a second Facebook account: a fake Armel who uses photos of the real him and who has many female friends, all of whom live in Kinshasa. According to the profile, fake Armel invites these women to audition for his next film, which is supposedly set in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
