Eric and Cate live and work on Mars and must fulfil their contract to the all-powerful Erasure Institute. The Erasure Institute has mastered the technology of "erasing", which removes emotional pain and trauma. Eric begins to suspect that the Institute’s work may have a darker side. At the same time, Cate is haunted by inexplicable and disturbing memories. Cate decides that voluntary erasure might be her only way out.
Can love be erased?
The idea for Erased came many years ago when I was musing on the idea of being able to erase painful memories from the brain. Going through a break-up at the time, I imagined the ability to erase someone from my memories. That, married with my love for storytelling via filmmaking, created Erased. One of the main concepts explored in Erased is selfishness. How much would you sacrifice for someone you love? There are no villains in Erased, just two humans trying to do what is best.
