When activist Sun Lee leads a protest against civilian killings by drones manufactured by the defense contracting company her grandfather founded, it leads to a dramatic falling out with her family. Now, the activist group she leads becomes the target of an unscrupulous government informant, who infiltrates the group and frames two members for a fabricated terrorist plot. Grappling with betrayal at every turn, Sun continues to strive for a shareholders' resolution condemning the drone killings, while leading her organization in the fight against the systematic shredding of U.S. democracy.

Writer/Director Brave to Tackle Subject of Widespread Corruption!
21 August 2016 | by BettyABSOLUTELYSee all my reviews

I wish more Filmmakers would tackle the injustice of how Large Corporations completely control our government. "Citizens United"--and its effect on ALL of our lives--should be on everyone's mind. Films SHOULD make us think as well as feel! I think the Filmmaker was trying to show ordinary citizens trying to take a stand against our modern-day Goliath. And he was trying to leave us with an overall positive message: Yes, there are huge forces manipulating the system against us... but that cannot stop people who want a better future!!! The film has an extremely motivating tone to it. Also it was great to see multiple- Emmy-winning actor Ed Asner in this.
