PG-13
Welcome to the not-too-distant future, where implanted microchips record every single moment of a person's life. Upon death, it becomes the job of a "cutter" like Alan Hakman (Oscar-winner Robin Williams) to edit down the deceased's entire lifetime into a fitting memorial film.

But when, on his latest assignment, he views a terrible secret that can't be erased, Hakman finds his own life in jeopardy.
