Storyline

Victoria wakes with a head-ache and bandaged wrists,pills spilled on the floor. A strange sign is flickering on the television but she can remember nothing. Outside she meets Jem, a young woman who explains that the signal on the television set comes from the White Bear transmitter. It has turned most of the population into voyeurs who do nothing but watch and sometimes film as a deadly elite known as the hunters kill those unaffected by the signal,such as Jem and Victoria. Escaping from a hunter they reach the White Bear transmitter,which they intend to destroy. However the White Bear set-up is not what it first appears and nor is Victoria. Written by don @ minifie-1

Making the punishment fit the crime...
14 February 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

A young woman awakens to find herself totally confused. She can't remember who she is and is amazed to see people chasing after her with weapons and they are trying to kill her. To make it all very surreal, there are LOTS of other people standing about with their smartphones videotaping the procedings. It seems that she's the prey in some strange game and the results are deadly. But what does it all mean??

As usual, this episode of "Black Mirror" looks at modern technology and possible technology of the near future to propose how it might be abused. In this case, a woman is being horribly tormented and chased in something that is reminiscent of "The Jerry Springer Show" and a hunting show! Very thought provoking, I am a bit reticent to strongly recommend it because it becomes almost like torture porn watching the show. A bit too disturbing and vivid for many.
