“Nerve” is primarily that. Vee signs up to the platform after an incident where her “best friend” embarrasses her and Vee realises that Sydney (Emily Meade) is the outgoing one who takes the chances in life and lives her life to the full and it’s totally immersed in the game. Sydney thrives on gaining more “Watchers” (which she says Vee is in real life, wilting in the corner) and hoping to make it to the top of the Nerve League.
