I meet Paulo in autumn 2018. Few weeks after, we are together at the heart of the Gilets jaunes protests. The earth trembles as we fall in love. Our momentum joins thousands of others who express their anger in the street, every Saturday, during months. But how reconcile free love and revolution when everything around us keeps us away from it, hurts and represses us ? Uprising tells the story of a love and an insurrection.
