    In a hybrid documentary, four mothers talk about their sons being in the Amsterdam crime prevention program. Portrayed by lip-syncing actresses, the mothers share intimate stories of maternal love, parenthood, and frustration. Trapped in a tight-knit network of police, social workers, an ambitious mayor and a predictive algorithm. But can anyone’s life really be captured by data? Can they challenge the statistics that mark them as dangerous?
