What is Netflix’s ‘Clickbait’ about?

Netflix Clickbait tells the story of loving father, husband and brother Nick Brewer whose life dramatically changes when he is abducted.

A video soon appears online showing a badly beaten Nick holding a card that reads: “I abuse women. At five million views, I die.”

His wife Sophie (Betty Gabriel) and sister Pia (Zoe Kazan) are frantic as they desperately try to find and save him, but they soon discover things about Nick that they never knew.

Across eight episodes, this compelling series delves into the age of social media and explores the fractures between our virtual and real-life personas.
