Three young activists on different sides of the world cope with the negative consequences that activism has had on their private lives. Pepper is fighting for democracy in Hong Kong, Rayen raises his voice against growing social inequality in Chile, while Hilda tackles the devastating consequences of climate change in Uganda. Aware of the minimal chances of making any sort of direct change on their own, these three young women explain why they continue the fight.
