The story behind Miss World contestant Anastasia Lin using her beauty and brass to stand up against an oppressive juggernaut— the Chinese communist government. Drama, danger and fear follow Anastasia as she becomes the darling of the human rights community, traveling the globe to bring the world’s attention to an increasing list of China’s atrocities: the persecution of prisoners of conscience and live forced organ harvesting.


An unlikely candidate to crusade against some of the world’s worst human rights violations, Anastasia puts everything on line to stay true to her conscience—including her father’s safety and her chance at the crown.

“A genuine story of purpose and courage; beauty tempered through hardship in the face of overwhelming pressure.”

The epoch times

“Badass Beauty Queen is full of moments that capture the joy, fear, frustration and acceptance that is playing on a world’s stage while delivering an important message.”
