The Plot, Courtesy of Focus Features:

Profile follows an undercover British journalist in her quest to bait and expose a terrorist recruiter through social media, while trying not to be sucked in by her recruiter and lured into becoming a militant extremist herself.

The unconventional thriller plays out entirely on a computer screen in the Screenlife format, pioneered by Bekmambetov.”
