From the Peabody Award-winning director of Human Harvest (2014), comes a riveting thriller based on real-life events.

In the early 2000s, the increasing speak of information technology was fast becoming a perceived threat to the Chinese communist regime. Western technology companies were paid large sums to develop a high-profile project dubbed “The Golden Shield Project” aimed to censor and restrict internet access as well as monitor the activities of Chinese citizens.

When a young Western tech executive based in China suffers from heart failure on the job, he receives a heart transplant from an unknown donor. Once he discovers the horrific truth behind his operation he must risk his life to help save the next victims and find redemption.

Anastasia Lin has over 20 film & television credits to her name, receiving numerous awards including the Mexico International Film Festival’s Golden Palm Award. A theatre major with a minor in history and political science from the University of Toronto, she is also a human rights advocate and won the Miss World Canada title in 2015.

She was refused a visa to compete in Miss World Finals for her outspoken views on human rights violations in China by Chinese authorities.

Although originally born in China, Anastasia has a competent understanding of the political intricacies in the democratic world. Her ability to communicate the importance of China’s role in the debate of freedom of speech and trade is accomplished and convincing.

Comments:
“It would be easier and more comfortable to remain silent, as many in her position have, for fear it would affect their careers.”
- Rt Hon John Bercow MP of UK Parliament, the Speaker of the House of Commons
