The filmmaker travels the world as she takes us on a five-year investigation into the complex realities of the glass ceiling. Scrutinizing the statistics and delving into the lived experiences of women battling discrimination throughout the globe, she exposes the uncomfortable truths and dirty secrets of gender bias in the workplace. Simultaneously light-hearted and deadly serious, this vital, creative and surprising film shines a light on a much-misunderstood phenomenon and acts as a rallying cry to women – and men – everywhere to continue the fight for gender equality.
