BOYCOTT

When a news publisher in Arkansas, an attorney in Arizona, and a speech therapist in Texas are told they must choose between their jobs and their political beliefs, they launch legal battles that expose an attack on freedom of speech across 33 states in America.

BOYCOTT traces the impact of state legislation designed to penalize individuals and companies that choose to boycott Israel. A legal thriller with “accidental plaintiffs” at the center of the story, BOYCOTT is a bracing look at the far-reaching implications of anti-boycott legislation and an inspiring tale of everyday Americans standing up to protect our rights in an age of shifting politics and threats to freedom of speech.
