“…one of those films that you can’t help but remember by the time the festival ends and you’re thinking about your own personal best of the fest flicks.” TheIndependentCritic.com


Activist Karen Topakian has been arrested dozens of times for using nonviolent civil disobedience to protest nuclear proliferation, human rights abuses, environmental issues, and war. What drives her to repeatedly put her body on the line? In turn lighthearted and moving, Karen’s story speaks to the need for Americans, now more than ever, to exercise this important First Amendment right.

​Running time: 04:33. An Official Selection of 55 U.S. and international film festivals.
