The Dragon's gate

What is the efficacy of non-violence? How to make resistance irresistible?

These questions are embodied by Safi in The Dragon’s Gate. The Dragon’s Gate is an animation series following Safi. She is a brown uni dropout from Vaulx-en-Velin in the suburbs of Lyon, France and must face the obstacles that go with it. She wants more than her short life has offered her. She’s decided to face upfront anything that will block her way.

Tahar Djaout, an algerian journalist once said: “If you talk you die. If you keep quiet you die. So say and die.“

Safi’s journey is one that goes from cynical passiveness to taking hopeful actions, and she started to say.
