2020 Official Selection
Ten-year-old Jaysa’s dynamic speeches at rallies and city hall catalyze her community against the coal-fired power plant that causes her asthma – and they succeed in shutting it down. Evoking social justice and environmental racism, she wonders why so many such plants are put in her neighborhood. The film’s wonderful sound track is provided by her father, a reggae musician.
