Synopsis: In an observation room deep beneath the Capital, a new surveillance program launches to discover threats to the American people. Secret agents hack phones, computers, sex cams, security feeds, and even minds in the name of homeland security. Functioning as a series of pre-recorded episodes as well as a live performance, agents switch between different streams spying on flagged citizens who are struggling with forming their identities amidst a sea of technological, governmental, and societal restrictions.
