After 81 days of detention, world-renowned artist Ai Weiwei is placed under house arrest. While restricted and monitored by Chinese authorities, he is served with a lawsuit from the Chinese government that he dubs, “The Fake Case.” This film is an intimate encounter with one of today’s most politically influential artists and the system he challenges in his fight for human rights.
