On Friday, August 14, 2020, hundreds of people converged at Moore Square in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, USA to protest the reelection of the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko. This protest was in solidarity with the countless protestors in cities around the world and that filled the streets of Belarus that believe the elections to be fraudulent. Protests continue to this day, seeking for Lukashenko to step down and for new elections to take place. Rob Underhill is the director, and this is his first documentary project. The speakers in this documentary have been kept anonymous to protect their identities and the identities of possible friends and family they may have in Belarus.
