Synopsis: ANON is set in a near-future world where there is no privacy, ignorance or anonymity. Our private memories are recorded and crime almost ceases to exist. In trying to solve a series of unsolved murders, SAL FRIELAND (Owen) stumbles onto a young woman (Seyfried) who appears to have subverted the system and disappeared. She has no identity, no history and no record. Sal realizes it may not be the end of crime but the beginning. Known only as THE GIRL, Sal must find her before he becomes the next victim.

Show me, Sal.

I can't.


I really can't.

[gun fires, cocks]

[choral music plays]

So what are we looking at, Lester?

We analyzed the victim's record.

A week ago, an edit.

Technically, it's a duplication.

This footage has been rock and rolled.

To stretch it...

and if you analyze it carefully...

we'll see he spends too long on

several pages in the book.

Other anomalies with this footage...

you compare stock activity

in his Mind's Eye

with what actually happened to the market

on the day.

It's been elongated too, but...

unless you're looking for it,

you would never see it.

This is very good, so...

meticulous fucking work.

But it all masked deleted activity.

Illegal activity that the SEC missed.

A day later, he's cleared

of an insider trading charge.

Then there's this.

[doorbell chimes faintly]

It's kind of hard to hear with the music

playing in his head, but...


[doorbell chimes more clearly]

-That's a doorbell.

-Cray had a mystery guest.

They covered their tracks,

no evidence of the meeting.

There was nothing

in the victim's background

to suggest he had the ability

to launder his own record, so...

Hacker for hire.

Jordan Nees, has edits too.

Music producer with a history

of heroin addiction.

Had his latest relapse scrubbed.

So he wouldn't lose his job.

This is a nightmare.

The hypothetical... isn't.

Not only can they get into the house,

they're moving the furniture around.

Charlie, you know that girl I saw

yesterday on South William.

She matches the description of the last

person to see Nees alive.

Last night, she got deleted

from my history.

Thought it might be something in

the Ether, but nothing else is missing.

Now, I'm thinking that someone got

into my life record and erased her.

Send her back to me.
