An untraceable website called 'killwithme.com' comes online. The infomercial channel broadcasting in the background shows that this is a live-streaming. The psychopath who runs the website has a cat trapped on sticky paper and alerts the audience that as more people tune in, the quicker kitty dies. But soon he moves to human victims to illustrate his psychotic views...

Next a helicopter pilot is kidnapped and presented on the site, with the words 'Kill With Me' etched on his chest in a thin paper-cut. The victim is also connected to IV units that are filled with anticoagulants which cause his tissue to bleed uncontrollably, thus the more viewers tune in and the counter starts jumping into the millions of viewers, the man is bled to death. Our untraceable killer next uses heat lamps on a semi-famous TV presenter; the more people tune in, the more heat lamps are turned on and fry the living victim...

The victims continue, and this untraceable killer gets closer and closer to home until one day the agents on the case at the FBI internet crimes' unit log on to the website to notice that their colleague  Diane Lane is the new victim...

The message is simple: how easy it has become for us to consume each other, and `how ultimately we will end up consuming ourselves when there's nothing else left to consume.
