Children know that bodies sometimes disappear. In the postwar landscape they talk about the nature of the moon, of society and of the souls, which go away. The adults have vanished. The parents became extinct because of their own mistakes. There was no room on the planet for so many old people. There are many mysteries yet to be discovered.

When Dana sees a small dot of light flickering in her uterus in black and white on the ultrasound screen, she has to face facts. She is pregnant. Dana decides to end the pregnancy. On the day of her abortion, Dana meets women who each deal with the procedure in their own way. One is panicked, the other self-assured. Dana does things differently. She wants to study the picture of her embryo. She wants to utter the words "mother" on the day of her abortion. She wants to hear the voice of the partner she's lying to one last time. She wants to experience everything. It is the only way she will be able to get through this day.

"Everything We Know About You" examines 21st century issues of data control and the insidious power of social media using mid-20th century found footage and AI synthesised voices and characters. Digital corporations ensure us the information they harvest is used to deliver what we want, but is giving us what we want a form of control? Does telling us what we want to hear polarise society? Is freedom choice anything to do with freedom? And what is the secret of making your partner smile in the morning? The dominant model of propaganda and advertising was once that of insidious authorities brain-washing us to do something we previously wouldn't wanted to do. That model is now redundant; in the current era, the anonymous algorithms of transglobal business exploit us by giving us more of what we desire.
