In the summer of 2013, three individuals risked everything to expose secrets that they felt were harmful to the American people. Their actions have sparked international debates and protests, making an undeniable impact on the world.

Based on the lives of Edward Snowden, Michael Hastings, and Chelsea Manning, this short film presents an intimate look into these three very public lives.

The film premiered at RAINDANCE in London in 2014 and continues to play in festivals and screenings around the world.

An inventive film of an imperative narrative.
