Solastalgia The young climate activist Edda is frustrated by politics, society and her ignorant siblings. SOLASTALGIA has overtaken her. That burdening feeling of loss that arises when someone witnesses the destruction of the earth, and their own livelihood. Edda retreats to a small island in the North Frisian Wadden Sea and breaks off all contact. Once on Pellworm, she meets the pragmatic Sophie, a young farmer who sues the federal government for her right to a future. Edda has to realize that the island she is on is severely threatened by climate change. How can she succeed in making other people understand this threat? Is private retreat really an option?
In the hybrid film, the fictional character Edda meets the real protagonist Sophie. The director's solastalgic attitude meets the pragmatic reality of people who are already suffering from the consequences of climate change.
