Greta on the beach is a reflection on the human condition.
Immersed in the sound of the sea and the song of the seagulls, we witness the representation of a dull, unexpressed, empty humanity that only knows how to light up in the cathartic moment of desire, imagination, nostalgia and dance.

Guiding us on this journey, suspended between dream and reality, is the all-encompassing music of Philip Glass, the apocalyptic words of Nevil Shute, the disquieting and profound words of T.S. Eliot, and the voice of Greta Thumberg, a voice that if like the millenarists of the Middle Ages announces catastrophe, nevertheless resounds as a hope for redemption in its uncorrupted and incorruptible timbre, in the sensitivity that knows no compromise, in the courage of those who love courage and its horizons.
