In the near future, humanity lives in a technologically advanced, albeit dystopian society. The government requires that everyone receive an ocular implant that records everything they see. The implant simultaneously provides an augmented-reality heads-up display to the user for anybody they may see. Information ranging from basic social media biography information to private information for higher-level law enforcement to access. Sal Friedland (Owen) is a detective with the metropolitan police force. With the ocular implants and the ability for law enforcement to recall a visual record of the events in question, investigations into crimes amount to the assigned detectives reviewing the video and assessing whether the alleged perpetrator is innocent or guilty.
