Anna Vadimovna Sorokina is a Russian-born youngster. She moved to New York City in 2013 where she created her fictitious identity of Anna Delvey.

She pretended to be a wealthy German heiress, first appearing on the New York City party scene in 2016. She won over everyone immediately. However, as her bills started to pile up, her mask fall off.

In 2019, a jury convicted her of swindling almost everyone she knew. A judge accused her of running a big scam. However, even on her way to prison, she was sticking by her story.

She continued pretending to be Anna Delvey, a German heiress with a trust fund. This documentary takes a look at how she managed to scam everyone she knew.
