Set in a world with memory implants, Robin Williams plays a cutter, someone with the power of final edit over people’s recorded histories. His latest assignment is one that puts him in danger.
A Zoë Chip is an implant that records your entire life. When you die, the footage from your life is pieced together by an editor into a “Rememory,” a film that is shown at your memorial. A toy for the privileged, Zoë implants are changing the face of human interaction; however, there are those who are against this technology and believe that memories are meant to fade.
Alan Hakman (Williams) is the best “cutter” in the business. His ability to grant absolution to his often corrupt clients has put him in high demand. However, his talent for viewing life without emotion has shaped him into a distant man unable to experience life in the first person. He believes he is a “sin eater,” and his work provides him with the ability to forgive the sins of the dead. He hopes that if he exonerates others, he will somehow forgive himself.
While cutting a Rememory for a high-powered Zoë Tech officer, Alan discovers an image from his childhood that has haunted him his entire life. This discovery launches Alan on a high intensity search for truth and redemption.
