This story is fundamentally about three things: the American Dream takes on China, Inc., a Silicon Valley veteran beats Huawei, and a political amateur battles the CCP apparatus.
Under the leadership of Keith Krach, then Under Secretary of State, China’s tech giant Huawei’s ambition to take over the global 5G communications was shattered in a spectacular way by a patriotic team of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. In the process, they proved that China, Inc. is beatable and exposed its biggest weakness—lack of trust. Their well-honed, 3-prong strategy harnessed the three biggest areas of the U.S. competitive advantage by rallying its allies and friends, leveraging the resources of the private sector, and amplifying the moral high ground of democratic principles. By building an alliance of like-minded nations and companies based on democratic values, it garnered overwhelming international support and bipartisan backing.
Team USA’s 5G trifecta served as a beachhead to a larger battle against China’s economic aggression which this documentary series will explore in future episodes. This movie is the first part of the 3-part series.
