Incel stands for “involuntary celibates”. It’s a label given to members of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one, a state they describe as inceldom.

Told primarily through the personal stories of three men who identify as incels, the documentary explores how loneliness and social isolation can push unattractive young men into disturbing behavior. But the film also delves behind the sensationalist media headlines to unearth some of the reasons for incels’ existence – many feel alienated and are enduring difficulties, like mental health issues or traumatic upbringings.
