A major artist and LGBTQ+ icon in Asia, Hong Kong pop star Denise Ho drew the ire of Chinese authorities for her participation in the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement. Banned from performing in China, the singer focused on rebuilding her career, until the most recent wave of protests in Hong Kong led her back into activism. With unprecedented access to its subject, this documentary tells the story of Ho’s personal, political, and artistic awakening, and her continued fight for human rights.
