Erasing David was created by filmmaker David Bond who realised he is living in one of the most intrusive surveillance states in the world. He decides to find out how much private companies and the government know about him by putting himself under surveillance and attempting to disappear – a decision that changes his life forever. Leaving his pregnant wife and young child behind, he is tracked across the database state on a chilling journey that forces him to contemplate the meaning of privacy – and the loss of it.

David Bond tries to escape for a month and challenges Cameron Gowlett and Duncan Mee of Cerberus to track him. The film charts the battle of wits between David and the pair as they close in.
