The Catfish Movie is the story of a Young New York photographer Nev Schulman lives with brother Ariel and friend Henry Joost in New York. Abby Pierce, an eight years-old child prodigy artist in rural Michigan, sends him a painting of one of his photographs. They become Facebook friends in a network that broadens to Abby's family, including her mother, Angela; Angela's husband; and Abby's attractive older half-sister Megan, a songwriter.
For a documentary, Ariel and Henry film Nev as he begins a long-distance relationship with Megan, conducted over the Internet and phone calls, and they discuss meeting in person. She sends him MP3s of her songs, but Nev discovers that they are all taken from live performances on YouTube. He finds evidence that Megan and Abby have made other false claims.
Ariel urges his upset brother to continue the relationship for the documentary. The siblings and Henry travel to Michigan to confront Megan. They discover that Angela is a housewife who cares for two disabled stepsons. Both Abby and Angela's husband exist, but she is not a prodigy and he is not aware of the hoax. Angela is the artist, and created Megan as one of several sockpuppets to support the fiction. Watch Catfish Movie Online.
