This innovative and passionate documentary follows a rock band called Stop Crackdown in South Korea.

Amidst the extraordinary visuals of street protests, baton brandishing helmeted police, despair and survival; this groundbreaking film brings forth the untold realities of inhuman immigration policies of the fifteenth largest economy, South Korea.
