    Most of us agree that some censorship is necessary to a civil society, but where do you draw the line? Hearing the word 'censorship' makes us cringe, but is it a misunderstood idea? Håvard Fossum follows the daily working lives of censors from South Sudan, India, China and Iran, to the the USA and Germany. At once laugh-out-loud funny, deeply shocking and thought-provoking, this timely and intelligent doc will stay with you long after you watch it.
