Cam | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Alice Ackerman (Madeline Brewer) works as a camgirl online, broadcasting live shows from a studio she has set up in her home under the name "Lola_Lola". She is obsessed with her rank on the site, hoping to be number 1. Her mother is unaware of her career, believing that she works in web development. In one show, Alice simulates suicide on camera by pretending to slit her throat and using fake blood. This earns her large tips and increased popularity. She video chats with Barney (Michael Dempsey), a big tipper and a loyal audience, and he suggests they meet while he is in town. Alice writes down the date and location before Barney suddenly logs off.
In her next show, Alice finally hits the top 50, but barely has a chance to celebrate before her rank starts dropping due to a rival cam girl, Princess_X. Soon, Alice notices that "Lola" is currently streaming even though she is not online. She contacts the site's customer service but they assure her that playing old shows is impossible. Alice is locked out of her account so she logs in to a spare account to watch the show. The "Lola" on-screen responds to Alice's chats, proving that the show is indeed live. The woman on the broadcast looks and acts exactly like the real Alice. Alice's account is banned for attempting to warn viewers of the doppelganger so she creates a new one.
Meanwhile, her younger brother Jordan's friends see a stream by the fake Lola while attending Jordan's birthday party, which they then show him. He gets into a fight with his friend who called Alice a porn star, before confronting Alice in front of their mother and the other guests. Her secret exposed, Alice panics and leaves. The Lola double, meanwhile, stages elaborate shows with more effects, like simulating suicide by gunshot, bringing her rank up. At first, Alice suspects Princess_X is behind this but she is not. She contacts the police but they refuse to help. With no hope, she sees that a cam girl named Baby is advertising an upcoming live show with "Lola" and attempts to get into contact with the girl. During her meeting with Barney, Alice is able to glean from him information about Baby's location. She excuses herself to the bathroom to further investigate on her phone, and "Lola" goes live. Barney sees it and confronts Alice, accusing her of lying about her identity before assaulting her. Alice narrowly manages to escape.
