An Army officer arrives at Mrs. Cavanaugh's door to inform her that a new algorithm predicts that her son Eddie will die in battle. Not “did” die, but “will” die. Since Eddie just enlisted yesterday, she feels this is hardly fair. The officer reminds her that the possibility of death was mentioned in the recruitment contract: “Page 12, in the fine print, at the bottom.” I am the writer/director, and I play the officer.
