Synopsis

Amanda meets Casper on Facebook. He is heir to a very large and significant fund, he’s divorced, and has a daughter he is not allowed to see. On top of that he has a complicated relationship with his wealthy family.
That’s why Casper ends up moving in with Amanda in her small apartment in the suburbs where she lives with her young daughter.
Three months go by before Amanda discovers that none of what Casper has told her about himself is true. In reality Casper is not his real name, he’s on the dole, and lives in the basement of his grandparents’ house in a small village at the countryside.
But how could Amanda have been so blind? How could she let her self be so thoroughly fooled?
Amanda decides to find out who the man she’s been dating really is, and in the process, she discovers there are many other victims of Casper’s charm.
