"Just how much of our personal information is floating around in government and corporate databases? Filmmaker David Bond decides to find out, by disappearing for a month and setting two of the world's top private investigators the task of tracking him down, using only publicly available data. When David Bond receives a letter informing him that his daughter Ivy is among 25 million residents whose details have been lost by the government's Child Benefit Office, he makes a life-changing decision. He will leave his pregnant wife and child behind and put himself under surveillance for thirty days. The UK's top Private Investigators are hired to discover everything they can about him and his family and track David down as he attempts to vanish. Forced to contemplate the meaning of privacy - and the loss of it, David's disturbing journey leaves him with no doubt that although he has nothing to hide, he certainly has something to fear."--Container.

Directed by David Bond in 2010, this British dramatized documentary depicts the search by private detectives for a disappeared person with the available information form the government and corporate databases.
UK is supposed to be one of the three most intrusive surveillance states in the world, after China and Russia.
Director and performer David Bond tries to put the system to the test.
Nice try, but it appears ill-contrived.
It should've been strictly in a documentary mode without dramatization.

I thought that this would be a decent doc, but I was left disappointed. The premise is that there's so much information about us online that people have access to everything. A man tries to get lost in Europe to see if by using this access to information, he can be located. The guy is just naive, has no idea about protecting personal information and acts paranoid. It doesn't make good watching, but if you want to see what not to do to avoid detection...this is the one for you. This was a 2 star for me.
