Chasing Freedom depicts the horrors of life under the Taliban in Afghanistan and one young woman’s grueling attempt to gain political asylum in the United States.


Juliette Lewis stars as Libby Brock, an ambitious corporate lawyer who reluctantly takes on the pro-bono political asylum case of Meena, a young Afghan woman who has escaped from persecution in her own country. Chasing Freedom dramatizes a topic that has grown increasingly critical in recent years, as the United States grapples with the need to keep its citizens secure, yet also provide refuge to immigrants who are in real danger in their homelands.
