Brief synopsis

Greta starts a school strike for the climate. With determination she wants to show the adult world that if they don’t care about her future on earth, why should she care about her future in school? In just a few months her strike evolves into a global movement and Greta goes from being a quiet Swedish girl with Asperger’s syndrome to a world famous activist.

BR•F and director Nathan Grossman have followed her since her first day of striking and are now making a documentary of this fascinating journey. Starting outside the Swedish parliament aged 15 to today when she’s on the global stage fighting for the survival of the planet and pushing politicians to act stronger and faster.

She is Greta and she is changing the world by putting climate actions on the world leaders’ agenda. This is her story and we’re honoured to tell it together with her.
