What if the police could predict and prevent crime before it happened? Through advanced computer technology and video surveillance police in both the US and Europe are using a technology called pre-crime to gather and analyze information, which identifies individuals who will most likely perform or become victims of crime. The concept of pre-crime first turned up in the 1956 Philip K. Dick short story "Minority Report" and the documentary PRE-CRIME looks at what happens to our habits, freedom and notions of privacy when 1950's sci-fi becomes the reality of the 2010's.
