About the show
She is a young woman in a yellow dress. She has been shot by the police. As a video goes viral, she quickly becomes an icon of resistance and a revolution begins to stir. Ali and Leyla are panicking - they uploaded the footage and now the authorities are after them. Across town, Yasmin is desperate to know if her missing mother is still alive. Halfway around the world, a woman in London wants to help. As a tornado of dissent and violence spreads, everyone's life is going to change.
