For the first time ever, audiences get a behind-the-scenes insight into the world’s first truly global media event: “Operation Cablerun” : the 2011 operation during which WikiLeaks ran hundreds of thousands of secret US government cables to media outlets around the world.

In Mediastan, an undercover team of journalists drives across the central Asian republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and into US occupied Afghanistan, before continuing its journey into the west; regrouping in Julian Assange’s kitchen, ambushing the editor of the Guardian, and obtaining candid footage of the New York Times editor and its publisher Arthur Sulzberger.
