Can't Stop the Serenity
Can't Stop the Serenity is a global, grass-roots fundraising event. Cities in the United States and around the world will show the movie Serenity to show our support and appreciation for Joss Whedon and the universe he created, and raise money for Equality Now.
A passenger with a deadly secret. Six rebels on the run. An assassin in pursuit. When the renegade crew of Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they find themselves in an action-packed battle between the relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who will destroy anything - or anyone - to get the girl back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of all may be on their ship.
See the IMDB entry for Serenity for more information on the movie.
