Synopsis

Set in London across the late 19th and early 20th century, the film focuses on a turning point of the Suffragette campaign for the vote for women, from peaceful protest to aggressive demonstrations. Seen through the eyes of working-class factory worker Maud, newly recruited to the movement despite her husband's disapproval, she is drawn into the underground workings of the organisation as it develops more radical means of protest. Mirrored by government pressure on police to increase surveillance and punishment of the Suffragettes, Maud's faith in the movement is tested to the limits in this breathtaking fictionalisation of true events that changed the course of history.
