    Synopsis

    A character-driven documentary chronicling 16-year old Rebecca Hamilton and friends, as they lead the youth to take over the streets of Vancouver as part of the largest intersectional climate protests in history. Employing a vérité approach, we will take the audience inside the lives of Vancouver’s next generation of climate leaders as they engage in necessary conversations with adults who support and disagree with them. The film will dive into the emotional journey of what it’s like to come of age at an urgent time, where science states that the future of our planet is in danger and the next 11 years are crucial to prevent a breakdown. How do the youth balance the final year of high school with the impending doom they feel threatening their future?
