São Paulo, January 09, 2019 - A thousand likes in just one minute. This is the celebrity life of Ana, a digital influencer played by Larissa Manoela in the movie Airplane Mode, which marks her debut on Netflix. The video shows Ana’s routine as the face of a famous clothing brand headed up by the shady Carola (Katiusca Canoro). One important detail is revealed as well: she collects as many traffic fines as she does likes on social media. One day, while driving and using her phone at the same time, she crashes her car and sees her life turn upside down. Or, perhaps, she switches into airplane mode.
As punishment and to learn how to live without her smartphone, she is sent on a forced vacation to her grandfather’s farm, Germano (Erasmo Carlos) - cut off and with no internet. There, she has to help him in his garage. Goodbye to nail extensions and glamorous looks; hello to grease and car oil. However, in addition to fixing old cars, Ana gets the chance to reconnect with real life and to find out who she really is. After all, life is way more than just popular posts.
