Summary
Falun Gong is an ancient meditative practice that enjoyed a revival in China in the 1990's. The government approved it at first, but as it gained in popularity it was seen as a threat. Seventy to 100 million people were practicing Falun Gong, when it was outlawed in 1999. The government started brutally suppressing the followers. Practitioners have been beaten, placed in psychiatric hospitals where brainwashing and torture are used; others are held in labor camps where severe abuse and even murder have been reported. The government tries to justify its actions by fabricating stories about the dangers of Falun Gong. Human rights groups around the world are calling attention to the Chinese government's abuses. The film relates the story of a woman Zhizhen Dai whose husband was persecuted and murdered for his belief in Falun Gong. She now journeys around the world telling of his brutal death and of the ongoing suffering of millions of Chinese persecuted practitioners
