It is the year 2026 and MRI technology has advanced to a point where imaging of long term memories can be produced in near video quality. When Henri Miller has the new FVMRI scan during a routine medical procedure and it reveals his murdering of two contractors on his property, the legal machinery put in place by him when he signed a medical release sets the stage for the trial of the century as Henri may have to defend himself against the states primary evidence - the memory of a crime he doesn't remember committing. In the chambers of Judge Wagner, Henri's defense counsel pleads passionately to dismiss this landmark memory evidence on the basis of a flawed medical procedure; while the District Attorney extols that Henri signed away his rights to privacy when he released the parties during the initial medical procedure.
