Synopsis

Facing denunciations of their banned faith in the Chinese state media, an engineer named Liang and a hulking grain worker called "Big Truck" execute a bold and perilous plan to hack into state television.
In the aftermath, police raids sweep Changchun City, and illustrator Daxiong (Justice League, Star Wars), is forced to flee. He arrives in North America, blaming the hijacking for worsening a violent repression.
But his views about the TV hijacking are challenged when he meets the lone surviving participant to have escaped China, now living in Seoul. Daxiong uses his art to retrace the event--bringing to life an unprecedented story of defiance, harrowing eyewitness accounts of persecution, and an inspiring tale of determination in the face of injustice.
