Additional Information

The heart of her suburb is a concrete desert. Adja does not care. She wants to enjoy her life and have fun with her best friend Sabira, who is only interested in her followers on social media. In Adja’s family, everything revolves around her brother Tawfiq. He hits the ground running as a football star and makes everyone shine in the shadow of his success. Arthur is quite different. Together with Adja, he undergoes training in the social sector. He is ridiculed and mocked for his activities in the ZAD, the “zone à defendre”. This is a group of people who campaign against environmental destruction and want to prevent additional green spaces from being built on and concreted over. A shopping and entertainment centre is to be built on Arthur’s father’s land, and the family’s organic farm is to be razed to the ground. The activists occupy the piece of land and fight fiercely against rigorous police measures. Adja increasingly separates from her old environment, gets closer to Arthur and his ideas of a more sustainable world: “We are the climate generation, and we have to bring about change.”
