Maia Against the World

Maia Aagainst the World follows Maia, a strong-willed, edgy 18-year-old, who lives with her grandmother in a small community on a Danish Island. Maia is suddenly struck by eco anxiety and feels compelled to join the fight against climate change. In her naive and passionate attempts to convince her grandmother and their fellow, beef-loving islanders about the dire future of the planet as well as their beloved island, which is slowly being flooded, she is faced with incomprehension and apathy, putting Maia and her grandmother’s relationship to the test.
