NY, France, Israel, Palestine, Senegal, Columbia… Hip-hop has travelled through time and crossed many borders as a worldwide protest music.

This film is a musical statement of society seen through the eyes of those that make hip-hop the art form it is today. By following stars and up and coming new artists from around the globe, speaking out on complex social and political environments, this film sheds light on the rebellious and controversial language of hip-hop through its music, dance, and compelling graffiti. This journey shows hip-hop as a bridge of cultural differences and an activist for social change.
