Avatar Secrets chronicles writer/director Ramona Pringle’s personal journey across borders and bandwidths in search of love, meaning and community in the 21st century. Faced with a string of personal challenges, Ramona ventures online and into the world of MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games). There, she creates a digital avatar — a healer called ‘Tristanova’ — and sets off on her first quest. After reaching Level Two of the game, Ramona finds herself lost… very lost. Eventually she asks another player for help. This leads her to discover the first ‘avatar secret’ — that the hardest part of the quest isn’t the quest itself, it’s admitting that you can’t do it alone.
