It is inspired by Stéphane Hessel's book Time for Outrage! that sparked a transgenerational awakening that is gaining ground across Europe as it teeters on social implosion. At the heart of current events, at the center of the Occupy movement, we discover, through the eyes and experience of Betty, a young illegal alien from Africa, men and women standing up to the system. A mixture of dramatized scenes and real-life events are used to portray Betty’s journey to the heart of today’s zeitgeist.
