Description: In telling the courageous stories of Jennifer Zeng and Charles Lee, who were persecuted by the Chinese government for their spiritual beliefs in the ancient meditation practice of Falun Gong, the film exposes the widespread human rights violations that still take place today in China.

As political scandals surface and tensions rise along with more than one hundred and fifty thousand protests occurring each year inside China, this timely documentary also highlights the issue of unfair trade practices with the West and how Internet technologies and the re-emergence of traditional Chinese culture are helping bring freedom to 1.3 billion people in China.
