Protagonist is a riveting and provocative documentary that explores the psychological transformation of the modern character. Academy Award winning director Jessica Yu builds the film around four men with disparate backgrounds: a notorious former German terrorist, an evangelical minister who comes out of the closet, a bank robber turned journalist, and a Kung Fu devotee. The compelling narrative traces their different personal odysseys, from total obsession and extremism to cathartic moments when the four men realize they have become the opposites of what they intended. While each man's story is vastly different, they each travel the same path, and their stories are told in parallel threads to what happens in Euripides’ famous Greek tragedy The Bacchae. Striking wooden puppets function as an inventive Greek chorus to bring home Yu's timeless theme: at the end of the day, it is character that makes the man.
