The Entire History of You
Jesse Armstrong

This Black Mirror episode is about (digital) memory records, privacy rights, surveillance, holding grudges, and the importance to let the past go.
A world in which an implant allows people to replay their memories for themselves but also on screens for others. During the episode, Liam becomes more and more obsessed with his wife’s relationship with a former boyfriend whom she met again at a dinner party. He uses his memories to pressure her into revealing the truth and even forces her to play memories for him she actually does not want to show.
