Life Tracker (2012)
When Dillon decides to get off his ass and shoot some actual footage rather than simply calling himself a documentary filmmaker, he stumbles on a little known news story about a company called Life Tracker Limited out of Spokane Washington. The company claims it has discovered a way to predict biological events in a human’s life by looking at its DNA. Everyone views the story as a modern day form of palm reading that will go no where, but Dillon keeps turning on his camera when he finds articles on the Internet or hears about it on the news. Eventually there’s no choice but to continue documenting the story. It keeps getting bigger and bigger. It enters politics. It enters warfare. People all over the world are paying tons of money to see if their DNA shows any trace of disease, or future children, or when they’ll die.
With little to no resources, Dillon is left to gorilla style street interviews and filming the reactions of his small group of friends.
Maybe Dillon would never have started filming the Life Tracker documentary if he had known how close to home the new technology would hit. When Dillon, his best friend Scott, and Scott’s girlfriend Bell all go get their futures predicted their lives start to change… along with the world itself. Nothing is physically changed in any single person’s day-to-day life, but the ideas that have been put in people’s heads convince them to flip the world upside-down…
That’s when things start to get out of hand.
