SYNOPSIS: Running parallel to the Black Lives Matter movement in the US, a surge of young black and brown activists has emerged in the UK fighting for racial, economic, and gender equality. This propulsive documentary immerses viewers in the inner-workings of some of London’s most prominent revolutionary groups—including the Black Revs and the R Movement—as they take to the streets, score successes, suffer disappointments, and transform Britain.
