BRUSSELS - Two young people are growing up in a world that is destroying itself. They each seek their own path and test how far they are willing to go in their actions.

Thirteen-year-old Bo lives in a quiet neighborhood, has a loving family, lots of friends and is doing well in school - a pretty perfect teenage life.Like young people around the world, Bo is curious, questions everything and is rebellious. As she follows the news, she becomes increasingly aware of the destruction of our planet - not only in faraway places, but also closer to home, in Belgium. She decides to fight climate change and joins Extinction Rebellion, along with her bosom friend Luca. They occupy factory sites and highways, and soon face opposition: they are ignored, criticized and arrested, and even spend time in police cells. While Luca proposes increasingly radical actions, the more thoughtful Bo seeks her own way through the challenges of our time.

Planet B is the coming-of-age story of two young teenagers trying to grow up in a world that is destroying itself. What will it take to make people realize that there is no Planet B?
