For some, he is a hero. For others, he is a villain. Edward Snowden is the person who showed the entire world how the US NSA agency spies on people all over the world. And because of that, he now has to live in exile, and run from the US authorities.

He was charged with theft, unauthorized communication of national defense information, and willful communication of classified communications intelligence information to an unauthorized person. The last two charges were brought under the 1917 Espionage Act.

He has been called both a patriot and a traitor. The documentary was filmed in Moscow, and offers a great insight how everything “spy-related and surveillance-related” started. Whistleblower Snowden started everything when he leaked details of massive government surveillance programs in 2013. He ignited a raging debate over digital privacy and security. And in the documentary, he shows all the ways a government can spy on you.
