Dans un monde futur, proche du totalitarisme, où des implants bioniques avancés signifient que toutes les personnes sont soumises à un flot visuel incessant de données qu'ils nomment « l'œil de l'esprit », la vie privée et l'anonymat comme nous les connaissons ont totalement disparu. Avec les informations personnelles de tout un chacun en affichage public, la vie de chaque personne étant enregistrée jusqu'à la milliseconde, les informations personnelles sont téléchargées sur une vaste grille appelée "l"Ether", une base de données que les forces de l'ordre peuvent consulter et utiliser pour poursuivre les criminels. L'inspecteur Sal Frieland (Clive Owen) est confronté à une série de terribles meurtres qui semblent être liés. La police se trouve dans l'incapacité d'identifier le tueur dont la particularité est de hacker ses victimes au point qu'elle se retrouvent avec le point de vue du tueur qui braque son arme sur elles et appuie sur la gâchette. Il devient vite apparent que ce que les meurtres ont en commun signale une rupture majeure dans le système sur lequel la société est basée. Alors qu'il enquête sur l'affaire, Frieland rencontre une femme (Amanda Seyfried) qui semble n'avoir aucune identité et qui s'avèrera être Anon. Quelque chose qu'il considère initialement comme un petit pépin devient en fait le premier indice démontrant que la sécurité de l '« œil de l'esprit » a été compromise, envoyant Frieland dans une mission où il sert d'appât pour tenter de piéger quelqu'un qui n'existe pas.
