A group of teenagers discuss their ideas of a queer utopia. They build online safe spaces within a popular video game and create a manifesto for a more equal and just world where everyone can be their true self. In this moving short documentary, directors Catarina de Sousa and Nick Tyson prove there is much to learn from Generation Z. With humour and kindness, they illustrate the power of a community of love.
