At the beginning of 2021, singer-songwriter and human rights activist James H. White set out for Washington, D.C., to write a song in protest of the Beijing Winter Olympics. After hearing the gut-wrenching story of three sisters who were tortured in China, he flew across the Atlantic to talk with several experts, hoping to shed light on the stories he heard from the three sisters.
The more he explored the topic, however, the more he discovered that what happened to the three sisters—and millions more like them—goes way beyond the human rights of one group, and way beyond the borders of China. The deeper and broader he dug, a more sinister specter was revealed to him—one that seems to underlie everything, from COVID-19 to media censorship, politics to entertainment.
Featuring insights from some of the world’s leading human rights experts, lawyers, and heart-breaking interviews with those who faced and survived the unimaginable, James’s year-long journey circles back to where it all started, in Washington D.C., where he faces a stark realization about who is really helping who.
