Revealing patterns in the worldwide struggle for democracy, this impassioned documentary hops back and forth between five case studies: Egypt, Ukraine, Zimbabwe, Malaysia, and Venezuela.

These outrages break "the barrier of apathy," sparking mass demonstrations that demand fair elections.

Warning: disturbing footage.
