Since June 2019, protests have rocked Hong Kong. What began as a mass movement against proposed legislation to authorize extradition to mainland China, became an overwhelming indicator of growing discontent with the Chinese Communist Party. “The People Dissent” is about the hope of young protestors living and continuing to live in hope, despite the increasingly bleak prospects for the political future of Hong Kong.
