When the Chinese Communist Party alters its promise of autonomy to Hong Kong, teenager Joshua Wong decides to fight for his homeland.

A remarkable portrait of courage, resilience and the propulsive power of youthful idealism, this is a chronicle of one young man risking his own future for a greater good.
