And soon, he is taken under the wing by Helena, a mysterious and influential woman in the virtual world. Helena turns Mikkel into a sophisticated avatar, equipped with everything he needs to interact with the most advanced users of Second Life.

Mikkel is very attracted to Helena and curious to find out more about her, but she refuses to meet him in real life. All he can think about is his virtual career which has become more important to him than his real life.
