Per The Synopsis,

“Dave was recently out of a long-term relationship and eager to restart his romantic life, so he did what most people do: He tried online dating. Liz and Cari were two of his most promising connections, both single moms with winning personalities who helped bring him out of his shell in different ways. It should have been an opportunity for this hard-working, devoted dad to enjoy a second chance at casual romance, but it turned into a twisted love triangle, putting Dave and everyone he cared about at risk.”

Twitter is understandably terrified by the subject matter. Online dating has become a big part of the culture over the last few years. As millennials, we trust strangers on apps to deliver food, and groceries, perform tasks, and even for hookups and potential long-term partners. So, the doc is a chilling reminder that anything can happen with these sorts of transactions.
