Journalist Hao Yi fights internet censorship and advocates freedom of speech. He hides his homosexuality for his mother, and because of his mother he even married a woman. In a unique style of documentary and animation we follow Hao in his journalistic works and his quest for personal freedom. Can the two be combined?
