Synopsis: A young man, torn between providing for his family and speaking truth to power when confronted with ethical lapses at his workplace.
A young woman born in a poor country where dreams are never allowed to be dreamt.
A man intent on holding fast to what he considers his, at any price.
A woman who would expend her last breath for justice---
All thrown together by the winds of destiny, in a time where justice and freedom were denied their true meaning, and storm clouds of revolution hang heavy in the air…
