When a Chinese elementary school principal who raped six of his students seems poised to receive a light sentence, famed women's rights advocate Ye Haiyan (AKA Hooligan Sparrow) leads a group of activists in a protest--a move that could end with each participant's arrest. As filmmaker Nanfu Wang films the demonstration and its aftermath, she becomes embroiled in the government's effort to harass and intimidate everyone associated with the protest. After being threatened by angry mobs, chased by police, and interrogated by national security agents, Wang discovers the Chinese government's willingness to target anyone they perceive to be a threat to their control.
