“Now” is a powerful story about the struggle of teenagers for a bright ecological future of our planet. Among the main characters is the Swedish eco-activist Greta Thunberg who was not afraid to publicly accuse the world's elites of indifference. She is supported by the German schoolboy Felix Finkbeiner. He came up with a project to improve the environment, and a few years later spoke at the UN General Assembly. Jim Rakete introduces the movement's heroes, comparing them to the rebels of the 1960s.
