Documentary about Edward Snowden, former employee of the US National Security Agency, who revealed how the US government is illegally collecting information from virtually everyone. Even at 113 minutes there's a sense that there's more to this story than can be told, but it's still a sobering look at what the American government is doing in the name of security.
