Activism turns out to be a form of action that gives Janka strength and hope.

Janka wakes up every day thinking about the end of the world. According to scientists, 2030 will be the year we trigger chain reaction resulting in the end of our civilization. This burden pushes Janka to take radical action. She begins to understand she will have to make a choice. Involvement in the climate movement dominates her everyday life; work and studies are relegated to the background. Activism turns out to be a form of action that gives her strength and hope. Among the moonlike landscape of an open-pit coal mine, she realises how far she will go to stop this. From this moment despair ends, and tactics begin.
