Set in a world with memory recording implants, Alan Hakman is a cutter, someone with the power of final edit over people's recorded histories. His latest assignment is one that puts him in danger.
Alan Hakman is a similar role to Robin William's earlier role in One Hour Photo (2002) which he starred as mentally disturbed photo developer Sy Parrish.
