The Return is a sci-fi, kung-fu, hip hop musical set in a world where all art, music, and communication was banned.  The ruthless 警察 Jǐngchá hunted and imprisoned all who did not obey the law.  Information was shared through a microchip that each citizen was given in a brain implant, which was used to send state propaganda messages, spreading lies and fear.  A few brave artists refused to stop creating and joined together to fight back.
