Since she was 14, Eva has considered privacy old-fashioned. She consistently lives her life publicly and online, constantly commented on by her fans. At 17 she leaves her conservative home in a small Italian town and ends up in Berlin. Eva is never finished, always reinventing herself: as a model, as a feminist, as a queer author or as a self-determined sex worker. A debut film that shows how a young member of the digital generation stages her fragmented personality as a public spectacle. For Eva, identity is like fashion; she can change it as she pleases. An insight into a world in which a camera is no problem even during sex.
