In the upcoming film 'Spree,' Joey Keery (Stranger Things) plays a young man who won't let pesky things like morality or a conscience stand in the way of viral fame.

Here's the official synopsis:

Meet Kurt (Joe Keery), a 23-year-old rideshare driver for Spree, who is so desperate for social media attention that he'll stop at nothing to go viral. He comes up with a plan to livestream a rampage as a shortcut to infamy - coining his evil scheme "#thelesson", he installs a set of cameras in his car and begins streaming his rides. Wildly miscalculating the popularity that would come from his lethal scheme, Kurt’s desperation grows as he tries to find a way to overcome the plan's flaws. In the middle of all this madness, a stand-up comedian (Sasheer Zamata) with her own viral agenda crosses Kurt's path and becomes the only hope to put a stop to his misguided carnage.

The film was co-written and directed by Eugene Kotlyarenko, and Keery and Zamata's co-stars include Mischa Barton, John DeLuca, Kyle Mooney and David Arquette.

'Spree' will be in theaters, on demand and digital on August 14.
