Greta vs Climate

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.
