Story


A ZoŽ Chip is a chip placed in your brain at birth to record your entire life. When you die, the footage from your life is edited into a "Rememory"-- a film shown at your funeral pieced together by an editor. A toy for the privileged, ZoŽ Chips are changing the face of human interaction, but there are those who are against this emerging technology, and believe that memories are meant to fade. Alan Hackman (Williams) is the best "cutter" in the business, his ability to grant the corrupt absolution of the sins of his clients, has put him in high demand.

However, his talent for viewing life without emotion has shaped him into a cold distant man and has made him unable to experience life in the first person. He believes he is a "sin eater" and his work provides him with the ability to absolve the dead of their sin. While cutting a Rememory for a high-powered colleague, Alan discovers an image from his childhood that has haunted him his entire life. This discovery leads him on a high intensity search for truth and redemption.
