Shot below the radar, COMPLICIT follows the journey of Chinese Foxconn factory migrant worker-turned-activist Yi Yeting, who takes his fight against the global electronic industry from his hospital bed to the international stage. While struggling to survive his own work-induced leukaemia, Yi Yeting teaches himself labour law in order to prepare a legal challenge against his former employers.

Wanting to help others, he volunteers at a non-profit that assists workers with occupational illness and injuries, eventually discovering dozens of workers poisoned while making smartphones in the neighborhood surrounding Appleʼs main supplier Foxconn. Powerful forces are unleashed as he confronts local factories, putting his own safety at risk.
