In her science class, Élise learns that the Earth’s atmosphere is warming up at an alarming rate, with melting icecaps and 16,306 species currently at risk of going extinct, and that this number is still climbing! She feels guilty, angry, afraid. What can she do to protect the environment from total destruction? With the help of her friend Amal, Élise starts working on an INCREDIBLE science project to save the planet and prevent total extinction. She just needs the perfect idea… Will she be able to save the planet? Or to save her friendship with Amal? It’s mission impossible. But if Élise and Amal can work together, anything is possible. A play touching on themes of friendship, teamwork, and nature conservation.
