John Anderton is the founder of Precrime, a system that identifies future murders and puts them away. He meets his new assistant, Ed Witwer, who he has not like very much. Anderton sees his name on a murderer card, meaning he will murder someone in the future.
If you were in his place, you'd act just as decisively...
Anderton shows his wife, Lisa, that card that has his name on it. Anderton claims that he is being set up, and Lisa is concerned about him. The name on the back of the card tells him who is going to murder, and it is Leopold Kaplan. He has never heard that name before.
You'll live, can you hear what I'm saying?
While Anderton is frightened, he plans to run awhile, and when he was packing his belongings, he was kidnapped. He was taken into a room, and he met the man who he is going to kill in the future. Leopold Kaplan talked to him about how he needs to be put away for his safety, and Anderton claims he is still being set up.
Who's behind it?
Anderton is riding in a car with Kaplan's "guards" to the police building. Anderton is talked about how Witwer wants take his job and is setting up. The other man agree with Anderton, but some think he's crazy and belongs in jail.
The driver in the car had gotten in a crash with another truck. Anderton was trapped and he was in pain, but he was thankfully was dragged out by someone.
A man came up to Anderton, telling him that he needed to leave the scene before the cops and that he was right about about being set up. Anderton's wife has been setting him up the whole time! This big man gave Anderton an ID, money, and directions to runway so he could be safe.
