In the initial years of the digital revolution, the World Wide Web and the spread of democracy were inextricably linked. The film shows how the web at present, thirty years later, is controlled by governments and communication is manipulated. Around the world, communities are forming independently of borders for the purpose of networking and jointly searching for new ways to defend democracy and privacy while also standing up for freedom of speech.
