Logline

A world premiere: On the trail of a political visionary.

As a founding member of the Green Party, Petra Kelly played a decisive part in shaping political discourse in West Germany in the 1980s. But who exactly was this person who brought hundreds of thousands of people onto the streets to protest the stationing of nuclear missiles? Using unreleased footage and interviews from international archives, this film depicts a sensitive yet resolute political visionary who let no one hold her back.
