Breaking Point is the dramatic and inspiring portrait of people willing to give up their private, everyday lives to unite in a collective effort to bring the rule of law and democracy to their country. Their battle to wrest power from the autocrats and plutocrats who control their governments is a struggle that is being waged around the world, from the Middle East to America. The outcome affects not only the future of Ukraine, but the future of democracy throughout the world.
A powerful and compelling account of the violent Maidan Square battles. Ukrainian-born filmmaker Damien Kolody travels to his homeland to document the brutal 2014 insurrection from the streets, as the people of Ukraine spontaneously rise up against their corrupt and oppressive government, going to war in the pursuit of a better future.
