Golden Shield is a play that fuses a family drama with a legal drama. It centers on two sisters: Julie Chen, an American lawyer who files a class-action lawsuit involving the Chinese government and an international tech company; and Eva, who Julie hires as her translator for the legal proceedings. Julie has gotten a Chinese dissident to testify in American court against the tech company and needs Eva's translation skills, but the women don't see eye-to-eye, as they haven't been in each other's lives for a while. As the two work to speak the same language - literally and figuratively - and win the case, they must make compromises and move beyond their past differences.
