They begin to correspond via email.
From their computers, they share their daily lives, learn of each other's risky hobbies, then the riskier secrets. Finally they truly confide, but weave truth and fantasy in made-up worlds where there is only the illusion of safety in the quest to be "known."
A romantic battles a cynic over the meaning of love, and rights to "what's real." They discover that honesty and vulnerability are two different things, and self-deception is the most insidious lie of all.
