In real life, Suzu is an insecure teenager living in a small town with her father. However, online, in the virtual world of ‘U’, she is Belle, a successful singer with millions of followers. Because no one knows shy Suzu is the person behind the pop idol, she becomes increasingly trapped by this double life. Her meeting with the Beast, a mysterious creature in ‘U’, increasingly brings her on and offline lives together.
