When the state of Texas permitted the carrying of firearms on university campuses, student Jessica Jin and her colleagues decided to protest with dildos in hand.

In 2015, the governor of Texas signed a controversial law permitting the carrying of firearms on university campuses. In response, Jessica Jin and other students created an original protest campaign entitled "Cocks not Glocks", calling for the visible carrying of rubber penises. In doing so they pointed to the absurdity of the Texas law: while carrying guns in the campus is legal, the depiction of a penis is a misdemeanour. Do erotic aids pose a greater threat to students than a loaded weapon? The film explores how opposing parties can engage in dialogue in a democratic society where everyone claims freedom of expression.
