What is a democracy? Across the globe, this heralded form of government is under attack by the very leaders it elected. In this groundbreaking documentary, we follow the crisis of faith in five different countries. From Hong Kong, to Tunisia, to India, to Japan, and even to the so called birthplace of democracy—the United States of America—what was once believed to be the pinnacle of human society is being torn at by hungry wolves seeking power and status for themselves. In the face of threats that come in the guise of friendly leaders, what can the people do to save their democratic freedoms? Can the tides be turned back, or is "freedom for the wolf" destined to bring "death for the sheep?”
