Melati is 18 years old and has been fighting against plastic pollution in Indonesia since she was a child. On a journey around the world, she meets seven young activists. Like her, they are all fighting for a better future and not only achieving incredible things: they are also completely reinventing their lives and the lives of many others. Mohammad runs a school for refugee children in Lebanon. Memory saves girls from rape and child marriage in Malawi. Rene gives people in a Brazilian favela a voice. Xiuhtezcatl fights against fracking in the USA. Mary saves refugees from drowning in Greece and Winnie shows how people in Uganda can survive with organic farming. How big are the tasks they have set themselves? Will there be enough time? Melati says: To fight for something is to decide for love and against fear.
