In the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks, the U.S. government has embraced new tools and new powers to track the movements of people within America's borders. While headlines about increased scrutiny may seem familiar, most Americans don't know the half of it. Government and the private sector are busily teaming up to create a surveillance society unlike the world has ever seen. This investigative documentary tells the story of the nation's quest to use data and surveillance technology as a magic bullet. Washington Post reporter Robert O'Harrow and ARW producer John Biewen take you behind the scenes to meet powerful but little-known data moguls, senior government officials, and ordinary people whose lives have been changed along the way.
