Data has surpassed oil as the planet’s most valuable asset, and it is being weaponized to wage wars both cultural and political. This incredibly in-depth piece of investigative journalism uncovers the dark realm of data exploitation. Following the compelling personal journeys of players on opposite sides of the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data breach that shocked the world, it urges us to question the origin of the information we consume, and challenges us to consider what we give up when we tap that phone or keyboard in this digital age.
