An Orwellian documentary that uncovers the world of modern police technology to predict crime before it happens.

We are almost constantly being watched by cameras in the city streets. Our computers collect and, without our knowledge, provide us with all personal data using an algorithm: what we like, who we meet and what we did last month. Police in several world capitals have already systematically linked this information together in an attempt to reduce crime in problematic parts of cities. All the collected details from the lives of monitored citizens determine whether the police will preventively evaluate them as likely criminals or potential victims of a crime. But are 21st-century technologies really protecting us against evil or, on the contrary, helping to deepen prejudice and social tensions?
