Plot summary

What is Anon movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Anon" movie plot summary.

In the near future, humanity lives in a technologically advanced, albeit dystopian society. The government requires that everyone receive an ocular implant that records everything they see. The implant simultaneously provides an augmented-reality heads-up display to the user for anybody they may see. Information ranging from basic social media biography information to private information for higher-level law enforcement to access.
Sal (Clive Owen) Friedland (Owen) is a detective with the metropolitan police force. With the ocular implants and the ability for law enforcement to recall a visual record of the events in question, investigations into crimes amount to the assigned detectives reviewing the video and assessing whether the alleged perpetrator is innocent or guilty.
One day Sal crosses paths with a girl (Seyfried) who appears to trigger a glitch in his ocular implant, as no data about her is retrieved. When he reviews his own record of his encounter with her, she is noticeably absent from the recording. Later at work, Sal is handed several homicide cases which all seem to be related due to the fact that the victim's own visual records of their deaths are each replaced with the record of the killer, showing his or her point of view and thus not revealing their identity.
The detectives eventually uncover that all the victims hired someone with the expertise to delete pieces of their visual records that they felt were either humiliating or incriminating. This "Anon" goes on to erase these unwanted records from these clients' visual records once their business is complete. Determining that the mysterious girl Sal encountered earlier clearly has the abilities to manipulate the system in such a way, she becomes their primary suspect. Sal goes undercover, creating a false history as a stockbroker who engages in a brief affair with a prostitute. Using this as the pretext for her services, he makes contact with the girl hoping to have his encounter with the prostitute deleted. With his team on standby in the adjacent apartment, the initial plan to apprehend her fails when she successfully covers her tracks. Throughout this process, Sal and the girl begin to develop a personal relationship which culminates in passionate lovemaking. During the second sting attempt made later, the girl discovered Sal's true identity and flees. One of Sal's colleagues is killed in the process, seemingly by her.
