In December 2018, the Sudanese people took to the streets in wide protests and demonstrations against the oppressive al-Bashir regime. On April 6th 2019, the protestors staged a sit-in in front of the Sudanese army headquarters in Khartoum that was met with excessive force by militarized troops. On April 11 of 2019, just days later, al-Bashir was forced by army commanders to step down as President. It is estimated that over 100 people were killed since the beginning of the protests, as well as hundreds injured and arrested.

This documentary explores the modality and procedures through which the revolutionists created different forms of action in order to create change. Despite the goverment's many attempts at violently thrawting their efforts, through solidarity and cooperation nothing could stop the Sudanese people from altering the coarse of their country's history.
