Welcome to the Enclave follows two Texas sisters who fled to the metaverse at the onset of the pandemic by creating The Enclave, a cyber-haven for 'like-minded' women. Years later, the digital suburb is on the verge of bankruptcy, and the surrounding nature has caught a virus, causing it to multiply and overtake the neighborhood. As three roaming live-feed cameras tour the neighborhood they convey an uncanny loneliness, a feeling of confused anticipation, while the sisters await an audience that may never arrive. In-fighting over trolling and tone deaf pleas to the camera punctuate their corporate performances and further unravel the delusion at the heart of The Enclave's promise of upholding the white, American ideal.
