Eight Millimeter stars Nicolas Cage as Tom Welles, a surveillance specialist who stumbles onto a reel of film which turns his life upside down. This case pulls Welles from his family into a deep, dark and sorid world in search of the source of this small reel of eight millimeter film.

This is happening all around us, at any given time, within the radius of a few square miles. Tom Welles is like a symbol of the collective conscious of the United States." (Columbia Pictures).
