PVT Chat follows the previously acclaimed 2018 film Cam, except instead of dealing with the female performer's struggle to maintain her identity, the story reverses the situation and deals with the client of one. In this case, the character of Jack (Played by ). Initially starting out in the story as an internet gambler living in NYC, Jack becomes fixated on a cam girl from San Francisco named Scarlet. The poster for the film quickly makes sure to identify that fixation:

As the trailer shows, this leads to a psychological rabbit hole in which a man struggles to separate the fantasy girl from the person he sees before him. Check it out below:
PVT Chat is written and directed by Ben Hozie. It is set to land in available theaters on February 5, 2021, followed by a VOD and Digital HD release on February 9, 2021.
