Imagine a world in which surveillance has no limits. What can happen when it's in the hands of repressive governments? With countries investing millions in mass surveillance technologies to learn what the population is up to, the adage “walls have ears” has evolved to “smartphones have ears”. Cyber surveillance technology is enabling governments to record, archive, and analyse the communications of their citizens. This film is an investigation into the dangerous alliance of Western surveillance technology and Middle-Eastern governments eager to apply it to their citizens.
