During the COVID-19 pandemic, Korinne loses everything: her job, livelihood—and if she doesn’t find funds soon, she’ll lose her apartment, too. Her saving grace is “SubsOnly”: a lucrative subscription service site in which she conducts virtual dates (and sells high-quality photos of her feet) under a pseudonym. When an opportunity to forge a true connection arises, she must be true to herself—or face yet another tiring loss. All is fair in Love and Corona, a lighthearted and poignant look into modern-day relationships.
