Bei Bei is a legal and political drama with two extraordinary women at its center: one, a Chinese immigrant charged with first degree murder and the other, a successful white collar lawyer who unwittingly finds herself defending a woman against legally unprecedented charges. 

Extraordinary access to Bei Bei and Linda as they fight the charges, culminating in an unexpected and surprising resolution, is counterpointed by Bei Bei and Linda's personal narrative. Along the way, Linda & Bei Bei uncover hidden political motives behind the case that could affect many more women than just Bei Bei. The film is an in depth look at how political, cultural and legal forces can conspire to disrupt and wreck the lives of societies’ most vulnerable and marginalized people.
