Roddy has a camera implanted in his eye. He’s been hired by a television producer to film a documentary of terminally ill Katherine, without her knowledge. His footage will then be run on the popular TV series, "Death Watch". Bertrand Tavernier’s stunningly prophetic sci-fi noir is like nothing else. Opaquely scripted by the brilliant David Rayfiel (Three Days of the Condor, Jeremiah Johnson) and filmed in Glasgow while it was undergoing massive renovation, it is a mad trip into the heart of big brother.
